There are a lot of changes with the borough as the New Year gets started. On January 6th, 2020, there was a special council meeting to officially appoint the borough government. As previously posted, Jim Moore, Gwen Dellett, and Ron Gyure were all reelected to the borough council. Jim Moore was reappointed as President with Jeff Rager being appointed Vice President. These changes were made to the Council Membership section of the website. Also, partial detailed results of the November elections were posted by the county voting office. They only listed the top three write-in vote recipients which you can see in the Residents Voting web page. The borough council meetings will continue to be held the third Tuesday of each month. However, starting with the 21 January 2020 borough council meeting the new starting time will 6:30 p.m. These 12 meetings were added to the Events Calendar. Next, a web page called “Proclamations and Resolutions” was added under the Borough Council section. These specialized documents will be listed here as they are approved.
