The agenda for Monday’s borough council meeting

In Uncategorized on September 9, 2017 at 6:57 am

The agenda includes:

  • Lindsey Brenner, 1020 Cloverton Drive – NOTE: Brenner and her husband, Tim Hess, have issued statements and made comments about their property at several council meetings. See here – and here – and here and here.
  • another (and a reduced) offer to buy Locust Street property – NOTE: At last month’s meeting, council declined to acquire the property when the offer was “$125,000 proposed by seller.”)
  • An extension of the Rising Tide Collaborative, LLC agreement for one more year. “Rebecca Denlinger was contracted by the borough in September, 2016. She is the principal of Rising Tide Collaborative, LLC. Contracted to spearhead a program to provide a “scope of services to be presented by the Independent Contractor.” Her services include the fostering of coordination, collaboration, communication and consistency among the varied interests and programs that have been identified previously as master plans, strategic plans and other grant-funded idea documents.

  1. Council “writing off” eleven open invoices? In order to question this before the vote we would have to know what the eleven open invoices are and we cannot know that unless we secure a board packet and read it in five minutes before the meeting begins. If we comment at the end of the meeting the vote would already have taken place. What kind of position does that put the residents in? No-win.

  2. The Finance Committee’s minutes states, “many of the aging open invoices carried are noted that some are due from prior businesses for which no known information is available and some which are seriously dated, noting that numerous attempts to collect have been made.”

    Pity nobody’s worked in private sector with a major corporation. We looked a the aging file each month; we kept in touch with the folks who owed and we pressed for payment. Inevitably, there are those who cannot / do not pay. Perhaps the borough ought to consider posting the over 90 days owing names.

    That might prompt some payment.

    Still it’d be good to know the names of the debtors who will get the gift of write-offs.
