I have grown very weary of hearing how business-friendly the Borough of Gettysburg is.

The latest “business-friendly” move by the borough has them forcing a tent inspection on any business that was creative enough to try and save their livelihood by putting up a tent to stave off bankruptcy and keep dollars coming in the door. I am not sure why the borough waited so long to enforce this policy unless it was the idea of borough’s code enforcement contractor, PA Municipal Code Alliance (PMCA) as a way to keep his people busy and bring in lost revenue? Strange how this borough is more concerned with helping an out-of-county business stay afloat and decides to penalize its tax paying businesses and property owners.
