Bolivar Borough Council members discussed security and communication plans regarding community records and instructions and how they can better handle such items.

Mayor Tom Pickup said council should take more steps to keep residents better informed and to provide residents with better knowledge concerning emergency plans and emergency meeting places in the case that an emergency arises.

He urged that council look into more Internet security options and keep tight track of office records. Council member Sue Bartow stated measures have already been taken.

Bartow said plans are on track to repair storm drains on Third Street. The project should be completed by Thanksgiving.

“It's been approved,” she said. “The papers are signed and we are ready to go.”
