Did you know that Council refused to release it’s meeting minutes?

Did you know that Council refused to release it’s meeting minutes?

It took the PA’s Office of Open Records to require our Borough Council to publish minute of their meetings from earlier this year, which is required by law, wasting valuable tax dollars to defend their secrecy.

Together, we will:

• Post meetings agendas and minutes for every Council meeting to the Borough website quickly.

• Video record every council meeting and make them available online.

• Improve online access to information you need, including: building permit process and fees

• Develop a system for Borough residents to reach council in the event of an emergency.
