I know that there is a big push by the IRS for people to file their taxes online but not everyone wants to do it that way - including myself!
The tax forms are now available at the LaMott Library. I can say this from personal experience because I just picked up some of them a few days ago. The 1040 forms are available as well as other tax forms that you may need such as Schedule C form. This is a form that I need because I work from home and am self-employed but there are other tax forms available if you need them.
I know that there are some that may consider filing their taxes online much more easier but there are just some cases where you may feel that you want to fill out and file your taxes using the paper forms and mailing it in and fortunately our local library has the forms available for you if you need them.
Better hurry though because April 16th (April 15th falls on a Sunday) will be here sooner than you think!

I was able to attend the last community meeting that happened yesterday and here is what was mostly discussed:
- The big topic of discussion was the work that is being done on Willow Avenue between Penrose and Sycamore Sts. It seems that there have been a lot of complaints about the way that the traffic is moving in that area so the street improvement is supposed to hopefully take care of that. Commissioner Portner emphasized that the cost of the work is being paid for with government grants.
Trees are also going to be planted when the work is done.
- Also it was brought up as to why the area on Willow Ave. between Sycamore and Old York Road did not receive any of the new lighting that was installed and the answer was that since there was not enough money to do the whole area the area that was chosen was chosen because it had more residential properties and that there were more "dark" areas that needed to be lighted.
- There is still yet no buyer for the Temple's Tyler School of Art property.
- A special celebration is going on at the Shoprite at Cheltenham Mall to mark the completion of their renovation project. This will happen on Wednesday, December 14th at 10:30am

Just in case you haven't noticed it (or were not aware of it) there is some major street work being done on Willow Avenue between Penrose and Sycamore.
I asked one of the residents what was going on and he told me that Willow Avenue was being widened to better accomodate the traffic in the area.

Dear LaMott Neighbors,
We have getting so many requests for information about this neighborhood that we have decided to put together a newsletter to update everyone.
There are currently five houses on the market in the Lamott neighborhood, with prices ranging from $84,900 to $250,000. Of those, none are under contract.
In the past 6 months, three have sold. They are shown below.
When you are ready to make a move, we know how to use these facts to get the job done quickly. We are still in an active market and interest rates remain amazingly low.
For more information about the real estate market conditions in the neighborhood, please don't hesitate to contact our Realty Office, your Lamott neighborhood professionals....for that "extra effort" you can count on!
Who do you know that we can help?
Here is a list of properties that have sold in our area last year:
