Harrison gives final report on Econo Lodge

Thursday, November 16, 2017 by SUSAN RUMBLE in Local News

Attorney John Harrison, hired by South Whitehall to handle issues relating to the Econo Lodge, 1151 Bulldog Drive, presented a final report to commissioners at their Nov. 1 meeting.

Harrison was brought in during the summer to conduct an investigation of the Econo Lodge after a shooting on the premises which affected an adjacent business.

The incident raised concerns among neighbors regarding their safety and the possibility of illegal activities going on at the motel.

They were uneasy about long-term occupants living in the back portion of the establishment.
