This Friday, there’s a chill in the air and a new episode of TheBurg Podcast ready for your ears.

City government is lying in wait as an Act 47 bill lingers in the statehouse. This week, Lizzy and Larry talk about amendments to that bill, which would let Harrisburg exit Act 47 – but, as always, there’s a catch. They also discuss the recent appointment of a new city council member, as well as a report analyzing the Third Street corridor.

Fruit enthusiasts, stay tuned ‘til the end for an update on Lizzy’s hunt for Pawpaws.
