The first regularly scheduled council meeting of the new year was called to order by newly elected council president, Kelly Murphy at 7:07 pm at the borough hall council chambers before an assembly of fewer than 10 citizens and two students from Our Lady of the Angels School.
Here is the agenda for the meeting.
Council president Murphy verbally added an agenda item, Item 14. b. “Consider acceptance of Route 441 turnback upon receipt from PennDOT pending the solicitor’s review and approval.”
Mayor Leo Lutz recognized Catholic Schools Week by presenting a proclamation to representatives from Our Lady of the Angels School; shown above (from left) are Michele Detz, faculty member and the president and vice president of the Student Council.
The councillors glided through the agenda items and the council president announced that the council meetings-of-the-whole would be discontinued and the separate committee meetings would be reinstated. The committee chairpersons and the dates and meeting times for the separate committees will be posted on the Borough Website.

So someone posts this at a local facebook site:
MAKE FAST MONEY NOW!! THIS IS 100% LEGIT!!Everyone is Welcome!
Unlimited Job Positions!
Anyone can Join!
No Experience required!
Instant Account Setup and Money Making!…
Honestly, this is most likely a scam. Do not fall for the promises.
Or you can look here … but be careful, at the end of this video the narrator recommends another site … which curiously sounds, well, suspicious.
Or if you really want to send your money somewhere, why not consider helping to rehab a rat named Tinsel?
Tinsel is just one of a bunch of Columbia area (evidently) solicitations being presented at the gofundme.com Website.
gofundme is an online platform to get money for seemingly anything.
gofundme is not a scam. It operates with this business model.
“While it’s free to create and share your online fundraising campaign, GoFundMe will deduct a 5% fee from each donation that you receive. Since our fee is deducted automatically, you’ll never need to worry about being billed or owing us any money. A small processing fee of about 3% will also be deducted from each donation.”

The agenda is shown below.
NOTE: An additional agenda item was added, item II., 11. b. The council approved a special $5,000 bonus for acting borough manager Ron Miller to acknowledge his performance in the dual role of interim borough manager / public works director.
