Budget workshop delayed; council discusses legal matters

| Thursday, Oct. 24, 2002

PERRYOPOLIS - A budget workshop with additional business turned into a one-hour executive session Wednesday night, with no budget items discussed during the open meeting.

Borough council held the special meeting to discuss the budget but called an executive session to discuss legal and personnel matters. After 50 minutes, solicitor Sam Davis left the borough building and the executive session ended 10 minutes later.

"We were going to work on the budget," said Councilman Charles Johnson after the meeting. "But legal and contractual issues came up."

No additional work sessions were scheduled at the meeting. Johnson said the borough secretary would likely call council members to schedule future work sessions.

In other business:

  • All Perryopolis area residents who collect their mail at the post office should call the number on their Verizon phone bill to tell them their 911 street address. This will cut down on incorrect information being given to emergency services.

  • Perryopolis Area Ambulance Service is selling reflective metal address signs for $15. Call 724-736-4022 to order. The service will begin its annual membership drive next month with a bulk mailing. Individual memberships cost $35, a household is $40, seniors are $30 and businesses are $80.

  • Perry Township Supervisor A.J. Boni submitted the high bid, $555.55, for the borough's 1992 police car.

    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.
