Two Pottstown Police officers moved ahead in their careers Wednesday night, and borough council members outlined goals they hope will help Pottstown move ahead.

Pottstown newest sergeant is Mark Boyce and its newest corporal is Steven Morrisey.

Both were promoted in a ceremony Wednesday that filled the council room with family, fellow officers and well wishers.

Council also heard from organizers who want to revive a 10-year-old bicycle race in town -- the Pottstown Criterium.

And there was more discussion about reviving, or revising, the Pottstown Human Relations Commission.

Council will also vote Monday on whether to modify the lease for the former Pottstown Metal Weld building to the Carousel at Pottstown. The current lease required them to be open by the end of 2014. Terry Jones, the carousel vice president, said the facility will be open by April.

And there are vacancies caused by expired terms on the Blighted Property Review Committee, the Borough Authority, the Code Board of Appeals, the Environmental Advisory Commission, the Pottstown Downtown Improvement District Authority, the Planning Commission and the Zoning Hearing Board.

Most of those currently in the seats have asked to be re-appointed.

And then there were the goals.

Council President Dan Weand had asked each council member to come up with one goal for 2016.
