The meeting begins at 7:00 pm and is held at the borough office, 308 Locust Street,
Columbia, PA 17512.

Items on the agenda include:

  • a new councillor interview and appointee (maybe)
  • a follow up to the Food Waste to Energy Feasibility Study
  • an increase for the Market House’s funds allocation
  • a tax exemption for a fire company property
  • advertising “a Request for Expression of Interest which includes the Market House, the Borough Administration Building and the Fire Department Building”
  • to name the Trolley “The Columbia Trolley Works”
  • a gifted property: the property located at 550 N. Fifth Street to the Borough
  • hiring another part-time police officer

Some of these items were introduced and discussed in committee meetings.

THE LEGISLATIVE AND PROPERTY COMMITTEES EVIDENTLY HAVE NOT MET SINCE MARCH.

 

 

 

  1. Well it looks like the Sunshine Act is yet another joke on taxpayers. East Cocalico Township supervisors got away with hiring a manager at $95,000… before the vote approving the hire. (East Cocalico has about the same number of residents as Columbia). Five residents filed complaints, but essentially their concerns were ignored. What good is the Sunshine Act? This decision only serves to divide the elected officials from the taxpayers that they “serve.” It also enables them to continue operating behind closed doors.
