The April Borough Council meeting was convened at 7:04 pm tonight; councillors Jim Smith and Jody Gable were absent. The remaining councillors, the mayor, the acting borough manager, the finance director and the solicitor conducted the meeting in the presence of about a dozen people in the gallery. The meeting was adjourned at 9:14 pm.
The one absent councillor, Gable, submitted her resignation from council at a previous meeting.
Eligible citizens are encouraged to submit interest in completing Gable’s term. A letter of interest and a brief statement of qualifications should be tendered to the acting borough manager.
The basic qualification to serve as a borough councillor is to be a registered voter and resident of the borough. Councillors must have resided in the borough continuously for at least one year before their election. To continue serving as a councillor, an individual must retain residence within the borough. To qualify as a voter, a person must be eighteen years of age and a resident of the election district. A person whose name appears on the district voting register but who is no longer a resident of the borough is not a lawfully registered elector. Legal residence includes not only a person’s intention, but also a physical presence. The requirement of residence approximates domicile. Intention or voter registration is not enough; the actuality of an individual’s residence is better determined by conduct than by words. A person cannot declare a domicile inconsistent with the facts of where one actually lives.
