Narberth Got Free Street Lights for 20 Years; Giant Opens Center City Flagship; Phase 1B Expansion

PECO pulled the plug on around 80 street lights in downtown Narberth, Montgomery County, after they noticed the borough had been receiving free electricity for 20 years. PECO discovered a metering and billing issue in October 2020 and then cut the power. The lights are owned and operated by Narberth Borough. Borough officials think that work done by an unnamed contractor years ago led to the unmetered electrical hookup. It costs about $90 per year to run each light. "We have been in close communication with the Borough since then to resolve this issue and have the street lights properly metered going forward," said PECO in a statement. "All street lights need to be properly metered to ensure proper billing and reliable electric service." PECO has begun to restore service to the lights.

Giant held a grand opening for its new 2-story flagship grocery store along the Riverwalk at N. 23rd and Arch Streets on Friday, 3/19. The Logan Square location will include a food hall with Mission Taqueria, an outdoor terrace, beer garden, self-serve tap wall, and a Starbucks. The location will employ around 200 people, and positions are still available. The company will be donating $150,000 to local organizations like Mural Arts to create a food justice mural. "I just think that art should be everywhere and that a project like this helps reinforce the idea that Philadelphia is an outdoor museum, but one with meaning," said Mural Arts Executive Director Jane Golden. $25,000 will be donated to Reading Terminal Market.

"We're thrilled that Giant remains committed to growing and expanding in the Philadelphia market and adding this flagship location at the new Riverwalk development," Mayor Kenney said. "It's going to be a fantastic addition to this neighborhood. Giant's commitment to the Philadelphia region over the years has had a major impact on creating jobs and serving our city's residents. The last year has shown us more than ever just how essential quality grocery stores and their employees are."

Philadelphia health officials announced on Friday, 3/19, an expansion of those eligible to receive vaccines as part of Phase 1B. "Groups that will be added to high-risk medical conditions are people with intellectual disabilities, an expansion to the definition of immunosuppression, and also members of the clergy," said Philadelphia Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley. Studies show that those with intellectual disabilities have a greater chance of having more complicated infections or even dying from COVID-19. Anyone who takes medication that suppresses the immune system for any reason is now included. Clergy can now get their vaccines. "With services restarting, members of the clergy are at high risk for acquiring the COVID infection or transmitting it, particularly transmitting it to people who are elderly," Farley said. Through March 22, the vaccine clinic at the Convention Center is accepting walkups from 22 Philadelphia zip codes.
