Borough government is anything but consistent.
However, there's been one constant at every Council voting meeting: Councilmen Jack Hansen and Rich DiGregorio voting "no" to the paying of bills $1,000 or more.
Their dissidence stems from the hiring, according to Hansen, three years ago of solicitor Wisler Pearlstine LLP of Blue Bell.
However, Wisler Pearlstine LLP replaced solicitor Friedman Schuman in January 2010. Friedman Schuman replaced longtime solicitor Dischell, Bartle and Dooley.
"My opinion is we are paying too much money for a solicitor. It's a lot of money," said DiGregorio.
DiGregorio said he was happy with the old solicitor and their services.
"I feel that Lansdale is paying too much. In the past, the solicitor did quality work," he said.
Furthermore, he said the new solicitor gets paid $65 more an hour than the previous one.
Hansen shared the same sentiment with his councilmate.
"Our solicitor is getting paid $175 an hour, where the old one was $100 an hour," he said. "It's absolutely ridiculous spending that kind of money for a solicitor who is doing the same job."
Hansen said when Wisler Pearlstine was first hired, it was paid $165 an hour.
"I don't know (if $175) is the number officially. It's the number I heard it recently went up to," Hansen said. "When I asked the question at a council meeting, I was told it had no bearing on my question and would not be answered in a public meeting, which is wrong also. It's the peoples' money."
DiGregorio said that amount over a year really adds up to overspending on the borough's part.
Even though their votes are always in the minority - there are nine councilmembers - DiGregorio and Hansen will stick to their guns.
"It makes no difference who the solicitor is," Hansen said. "It's too much money to pay for."
