Blawnox officials approved the appointment of six officers for the Blawnox Volunteer Fire Company last week.

George McBriar was confirmed as fire chief. Jim Venti and Jeff Stephens are first and second captain, respectively. Matt Kauper, Tom Witas Jr. and Nate Steinberg are first, second and third lieutenant, respectively.

Councilman Scott Krause, who also is a volunteer fireman, said council likely will have to confirm other officers next month.

Water tank

A water-tank demolition project on Carla Drive should get under way this week, officials said.

Blawnox officials have been waiting for confirmation of a work schedule from Kosinski Demolition for the work to be completed.

Borough manager Sherry Kordas said she hoped they would be taking the tower down early this week.

An antenna on the tower has been removed to allow the work to proceed.

Next meeting

The next regular council meeting for Blawnox is set for Feb. 28 at 6:30 p.m.

Meetings are held at the borough building at 376 Freeport Road.
