Council Report- February

by Marty O’Toole

The meeting was called to order with Council VP Jonathan Glance presiding since Steve Tassaro was out of town.

Minutes from the January 7th meeting were approved and those from the meeting on January 14th were tabled as they were late getting distributed.

Historically, the council would at the beginning of the year make a motion to permit the treasurer to pay regular ongoing expenses without the monthly approval of the council to the extent there was nothing out of the ordinary. The new treasurer Dorothy Falk would prefer that all expenses be reviewed and approved by the council regardless. The council accepted her request.

The financial report was tabled for this month because of the short tenure of the new treasurer and that a resolution as required by council authorizing her as a contractor to receive information from Jordan Tax Service was made and approved.

The yearly financial audit was approved for the same company to complete and at last year’s contracted price.

One family spoke in front of council regarding the new enforcement of trailers and recreational vehicles visible within the boro. They were looking for clarification on when it is permissible when enclosed. The boro solicitor and council will review this question with the code enforcement officer. It was restated by council that this is not a new regulation but was overlooked by the previous code inspector.

The public portion of the meeting was ended and council went on to meet the Executive Session,

The next Council meeting is scheduled for March 11 at 7 pm. Please consult the borough’s website for meeting changes.
