Clymer Borough council appoints municipal member
CLYMER — Borough council accepted with regret the resignation of a municipal authority member at Tuesday’s meeting.
Member Julius Misurda gave no reason for his resignation, said Rob Barto, borough manager.
Council voted to replace Misurda with former member George Tate, who was not reappointed in January.
Tate will serve the remainder of Misurda’s term, which includes this year and next.
In other business, council:
• Approved raises of 39 cents per hour for Chief of Police Joe Douglas and street employee Jody Pearce.
Heard an update on the salt supply. Supplies are diminishing, Barto said, but the borough has been promised an order of a few truckloads in the coming weeks.
“Hopefully we’ll have enough to get us through,” Barto said.
• Also related to snowfall, member Louis Tate thanked those residents who have kept sidewalks free of snow and ice, and reminded others that it’s the law to do so.
• Approved a resolution to implement the emergency management plan for the year.
The borough has a consortium with Pine and Cherryhill townships regarding the plan, which outlines in detail what to do in the event of various emergencies.
