After narrowly making its quorum Wednesday evening, Homer City Borough Council voted to accept two resignations, held an executive session for personnel, and ratified and approved bills.

Joe Iezzi, Matt Black, Chris Worcester and Elizabeth Brown were the council members present for the meeting.

Mayor Kenneth ‘Cal' Cecconi offered his resignation from the Homer-Center Parks and Recreation board, which was accepted by a 4-0 vote. Cecconi encouraged the council to fill the vacancy with one of its own members.

“I think there should be a council member, a (Center) Township supervisor and somebody from the school district (on the Parks and Recreation board) because it would stop a lot of this lack of communication between the entities,” Cecconi said.

Iezzi suggested the council discuss Cecconi's proposal at next month's meeting when more council members are present.

The council also accepted the resignation of part-time borough police officer Francis Plummer, effective retroatcively to Dec. 18, by a 4-0 vote. Plummer cited scheduling conflicts as the reason for his resignation.

Cecconi said the borough is not looking to fill the position at this time.
