Wine festival in Hawley nixed

The food and wine festival proposed to be held in Hawley has been nixed because a majority of the Hawley Borough council thought it was not a good fit for the town. The council vote four to three on December 12 that the event would not go forward.

Opponents said they were concerned with liability issues with allowing alcohol to be consumed in a public park should something go wrong.  Read more

Hawley considers ‘distressed’ designation

The question of whether or not Hawley is an impoverished town was food for discussion for the approximately 50 people who attended the Hawley Borough Council meeting on December 12.

Investors in the Hawley Silk Mill want the borough to designate an area around the Silk Mill and the downtown area as “distressed,” which would allow the borough to adopt an ordinance that in turn could take advantage of the state’s Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance Act (LERTA). The investors are asking that the borough then approve tax abatements for the Silk Mill over five years.  Read more
