A photo collage | Photo 1 – The February Council meeting was last night. Weather may have kept people from attending as fewer than 20 persons were in the gallery. Absent, too, was the solicitor. Borough Manager Rebecca Denlinger said the counselor’s presence will be only when there’s an anticipated need for legal counsel.
