Citizens Thank Borough for Response to Concerns

Two citizens spoke up briefly at an unusually short Borough Council meeting to thank the borough government for addressing their concerns. During the public comment period of the work session meeting on Thursday, June 1, Rich Sheidy thanked the borough for closing Spruce Street during the Memorial Day events. Sheidy said he was glad the borough had acted on his request. Also, Robert Yahara, newly elected vice president of the homeowners association of the Conoy Creek development, thanked the borough for a new 25 mph speed limit posted on Masonic Drive as it goes through the development. He said people had been driving at excessive speeds and the signs should help.

Also at the meeting, Borough Police Lt. John Emrick, filling in for Chief Jack Mentzer, said police had received 1,384 calls for service in May for a total of 6,451 from the beginning of the year through the end of May. Borough police issued 87 citations and warnings in the month, Emrick said. The Uniform Crime Report was not available because it was the first day of the month and the numbers had not been compiled yet, he said.

The public meeting adjourned after three minutes so councilors could interview candidates for a police officer position.
