Borough Manager Rebecca Denlinger announced the retirement of Public Works Director Ron Miller, effective February 1, 2019. Miller has been with the borough most recently since 2011. Current Highway Department Manager Jake Graham and an administrative assistant will take over most of the responsibilities of the position, with remaining duties to be covered by Denlinger and the borough engineer.
Two personnel moves were also announced: Current Finance Manager Georgianna Schreck will become Assistant Borough Manager, and accountant Kyle Watts will fill the Finance Manager position. Schreck will stay at her current salary, but Watts will see an increase to $55,000 annually. Watts has been with the borough for about six months. The vacated accountant position will be advertised publicly if it cannot be filled in-house. The three-member committee approved motions for the transitions, which will be placed on Borough Council's December meeting agenda for a final vote. According to Denlinger, an updated organizational chart will be presented at the meeting.
