Port Vue police will not need to contribute to their employee pension fund in 2014.

Council on Wednesday unanimously amended the pension plan to eliminate officers' contribution for one year. Councilmen Bryan Myers II and Russell Wooster were absent.

“Without their contribution, it is fully funded,” Solicitor Patricia McGrail explained.

Pursuant to Act 600, the borough reserves the right to reduce or eliminate participant contributions below the mandated rate of 5 percent compensation on an annual basis.

In other business:

• The borough is seeking a replacement for building inspector Butch Anthony, whose resignation was accepted on Wednesday. In the meantime, his duties are being assumed by Glenn Engineering and Associates, the borough's contracted engineering firm.

Council president Mark Tortorice explained that Anthony's resignation was prompted by other commitments.

• Port Vue police are cautioning residents to keep their vehicle doors locked when the vehicle is not in use.

In response to a recent rash of thefts from vehicles, police said all of the incidents have involved cars with open windows or unlocked doors.
