"Kathy, thanks. I was listening to the video. I thought I heard three "No"s. I could be wrong, obviously. I don't think it matters that much, but don't want to misstate anything. The point was made."

"Dear Linda Shockley, as Jared stated (and as is often the case in such situations), he and no one was expecting to force him to stay.  Their no votes were ceremonial support for Bill in voting that they wish he would not leave.  Each of…"

"Trash was picked up in the 400 block sometime after 6:00 PM; however, they only took the loose bags of trash at my house leaving a full container of trash behind. Recycling was picked up sometime around 6:45 leaving the full can of trash for…"

"I totally understand these beliefs, having sat on a board, but it is the job of the chief executive (the BM) to manage day to day operations. They are hired to do that (or delegate duties). Board/council members set strategy, determine policy, and…"

Linda Shockley commented on Jim Butt's status
"Doing their job wrong? Why do you say that?  Who is supposed to know day-to-day?  The BM?  I guess I'm just having a problem seeing how it's a problem if a council member knows day-to-day, I don't see the harm in that."

Jim Butt commented on Jim Butt's status
"300s either. Not that I expect any councilor to know the day to day operations of the borough (they shouldn't, and they are doing their job wrong if they do), but I'd expect the borough to at least have something to say. No news on the…"

Our Comprehensive Plan

Posted on October 24, 2015 at 2:15pm 0 Comments

The Comprehensive Plan (CP) is developed periodically, but indeed it is a living document, subject to frequent review and assessment.  This is not to say that it should change constantly, but if it has been developed with the right approach, perspective, and input, it provides a guiding light toward a prosperous future for our community.  We review it to confirm that we are aligning our efforts to its long term…


RP Farmer's Market

I hope we're not paying someone to do this, but maybe we should have.  

Nice flame icon.

Anyone know what the trash pickup story is this week?

When I was a public official in my last hometown, I used to publish any comments that I wrote out (though I usually embellish when they are spoken).  Here are my written comments from last Wednesday's Council meeting:

I want to thank Mr. Catania for the chance to discuss the ongoing project to replace the bridge over the creek along Hillside Road.  That project includes an examination of a sidewalk along the south side of Hillside, which is depicted on the draft planning…
