Council holds work session, discusses return of Officer Tammy Murray

Reynoldsville Borough Council met in an work session on November 1 with a short agenda on tap.

Before moving to an executive session, council fielded a question from LeeAnn Toombs (who recently launched a write-in campaign for borough council) about the status of the reinstatement of Officer Tammy Murray to the borough police department.

In response, Council Member Max Smith, who is on the police committee, said it’s still in the hands of the attorneys.

“From what I’ve learned from with the union attorney and our attorney from the insurance company…it’s in everybody’s best interest—including Officer Murray’s—that certain details are worked out for her first day back,” he said. He added, “It’s not a matter of holding anything up.”

The council stressed it was not a negotiation, just meetings to work out final details of her return. The members were unable to provide an exact date when that will happen.

A resident also about a Covid infrastructure grant the borough received totaling $138,000 this year and the same amount next year. Council President William Cebulskie said that the money can only be used in certain ways and this year’s amount was turned over the the water and sewer authority to help offset costs for upcoming projects.

Council Member Kyle Gordon commended local residents for providing a special Halloween for the children of the borough with trick or treating and also trunk or treats at the Methodist Church and CG Johnson parking lots.

“I was really proud of the way our community gave our kids a Halloween this year,” he said.

Council then went into executive session and took no major action afterwards.
