Apollo ready to fill secretary, solicitor vacancies

Apollo soon could have a borough secretary and a solicitor again.

The borough’s personnel committee has candidates to fill the vacancies, which council is expected to vote on during its regular meeting on Thursday.

Borough council will meet at 7 p.m., Thursday, at the borough building, 616 First St.

Late last year, some borough council members were concerned about the operation of the borough after it eliminated the full-time borough manager’s position. Shortly thereafter, the borough solicitor and auditor resigned.

For the last month, borough office hours have been cut and council Vice President Diane Bradshaw has been volunteering to help a part-time office worker with borough duties.

After receiving resumes and interviewing candidates, council’s personnel committee has candidates for the borough solicitor and the part-time position of borough secretary, according to Councilwoman Nancy Walker, a member of the committee.

If council agrees on the candidates Thursday, the new solicitor will be ready to work immediately, according to Walker.

The new borough secretary will be ready to start in about two weeks, she said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
