A Routine Borough Council Meeting

Wednesday's work session of Pottstown Borough Council was a quick one, less than an hour.

There were few big ticket items, but a few smaller one.

Police Chief Rick Drumheller reported that the locations for street cameras have been identified and that project is moving forward thanks to the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.

Plans to close High Street for the Halloween Parade on Oct. 25 are moving forward, as are approvals for the Walk-Bike Pottstown project, which will change a few street orientations to make room for bike lanes.

Council also appears prepared to vote on changes to the fire ordinance, which will give more control to the fire chief position and now, thanks to input from council, will require the chief live within five miles of the borough within a year after getting the job.

The borough will likely hire the Maillie firm to conduct the next two year's audits of the borough's books due to their price coming in lower than was charged this year.

And, there are also a number of vacancies on borough boards, some of which may be filled Monday night.

They are: two vacant seats on the code board of appeals; one on the Environmental Advisory Council; one on the Historic Architecture Review Board; several on the Human Relations Commission and one on the Pottstown Downtown Improvement District Authority.

In the meantime, here are the Tweets and video from last night's meeting.
