Brentwood school board approves new tax collector

| Wednesday, March 13, 2013, 9:01 p.m.

Jordan Tax Service will handle delinquent tax collection in Brentwood Borough School District through the end of 2016.

School board members on Monday approved an agreement with the tax service for the collection of delinquent real estate, earned income tax and local services taxes.

The board last month agreed to terminate the district's contract with Berkheimer and Associates for these services, effective no later than May 17. The board's action on Monday provides a consistent agreement for the three delinquent collections, solicitor John Vogel said.

Staffing moves

School board members on Monday accepted the resignation of Brittany Bronowicz as junior varsity cheerleading coach, effective immediately.

Board members also approved the hiring of Dawn Ziegler as assistant boys and girls track coach for the 2012-13 school year.

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.
