Prospective buyer steals automobile A Pottstown woman reported the theft of her car Sunday by a man who she said had agreed to buy the vehicle. Dorothy Schultz, 1148 E. High St., told Patrolman Karl Karlson a man who lives at the same address she does saw the prospective auto customer drive off with the merchandise at 9 a.m. mounted on posts. Borough merchants within walking distance of the lot eagerly were awaiting completion of the project before the rush of the holiday shopping season begins. Parking will be free and unregulated for the first several months. At the last borough council meeting merchants made a request that a free trial period continue until Feb. 1, by which time usage patterns would be established. Without agreeing formally to the request, council delayed official action until its next meeting, scheduled for Dec. 1, before placing an order for parking meters. Read indicated that a waiting period of six weeks usually accompanies an order for that equipment. Work on the lot began in early December after numerous delays caused by technical problems of conveying what previously was three separate tracts, owned by the Berks County Redevelopment Authority, to the borough as one single tract. Contractor was Drum Construction Co., Telford, whose low bid, submitted in August, 1974, held firm until those technicalities could be straightened out. The project is part of the borough’s non-cash credit contribution to the Colonial Corners urban renewal program of the redevelopment authority. Drum’s bid, the lowest of five submitted,was for $77,607, plus an adjustment a year later of less than five percent. The lot contains 125 parking spaces, and the contract called for excavating, filling, rough grading, installation of reinforced storm sewers with three drainage inlets, sidewalks, curbing, subgrade, subbase, bituminous paving, furnishing and installation of electrical equipment, traffic control and landscaping.
