It appears the residents of Chester were so interested in hearing what the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Governor’s Center for Local Government Services had to say about their MUNICIPALITIES FINANCIAL RECOVERY PLAN FOR THE CITY OF CHESTER that folding chairs in the aisle weren’t enough to contain the overflow crowd that arrived at the City Hall council chambers and were ushered to the community room at the insistence of the fire chief.

There was something for everybody going on in Chester last night. But, only one event will likely hit the front page tomorrow.
