Manor Council selects Woy as president

| Wednesday, April 10, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Brian Woy is the new council president in Manor.

Council last week voted 5-0, with Christine Marchand absent, to promote Woy, 33, from the vice presidency.

Woy, a general manager at landscape retailer Kingston Supply and a volunteer fire captain, succeeds Chuck Konkus, who resigned last month because he moved to Penn Township.

Woy joined council in September 2010 as the replacement for Joe Lapia, who was hired as borough manager. He was elected to a four-year term in November 2011.

After Woy's ascension, council made its newest member, James Morgan, the new vice president. Woy, Morgan and Bruce Hartman voted for Morgan, while Dawn Lynn and Jeff Herman supported Lynn for the role.

Council appointed Morgan, 47, in July to replace Anthony Marciano. He is one of three candidates who filed nominating petitions to run for the four council seats on the ballot this year.

Council is expected to appoint someone to serve the remaining eight months of Konkus' term at the April 17 public meeting.

No street sweeping

Council opted against sweeping the streets this spring, which leaves the $2,200 that had been budgeted available for other road projects.

Lapia said the borough typically swept the streets in past years to prevent rock salt and other debris from winter from getting into the storm sewers. The borough rented a street sweeper last year for one week.

Woy and Herman said they didn't think sweeping the streets was necessary this year.

Fee waived

Council voted 3-2 to waive the 2013 T-ball fees for any recreation board members whose children play. For this year, the $40-per-child fee affects only one board member.

Hartman, a rec board member, requested the waiver. He said it's the only benefit the volunteer members get for their service. Woy and Morgan joined Hartman in voting for the waiver, while Lynn and Herman voted against it.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
