POTTSTOWN COMMUNITY UPDATE

Since the opening of OWM Law’s Pottstown office in 1955, we have been strongly committed to supporting the communities in which we do business. Over the last two months, OWM Law has focused our PCTV program on the communities where our offices are located – Pottstown and Phoenixville – to provide some insight into what is going on in these two communities. This month, we are focusing on Pottstown and I invite you to watch our PCTV episode either through our website here or on the television (PCTV, Tuesdays at 8:30 on Channel 28, and Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. on Channel 98), to view an in-depth discussion with regard to the Pottstown and surrounding community. On the program I am joined by Eileen S. Dautrich, President of TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce, and Erica L. Batdorf, Assistant Borough Manager of the Borough of Pottstown.

Ms. Dautrich provides detail regarding the collaborations that make our community more attractive and Ms. Batdorf discusses various Pottstown programs including Pottstown CARES, Walk and Bike Pottstown, Trail projects in the TRec district and other local programs with the local school district and transportation systems.
