The Reynoldsville Borough Council held a meeting on January 6 and approved a motion to seek the annual tax anticipation note for up to $100,000. The money is used to fund borough operations while tax revenues come in.
During a discussion that followed, council president William Cebulskie sought nominations for Citizen of the Month. He also said he had asked Henry Deible to serve on the Sewer and Water Authority, but action on that will not be taken until the regular meeting on January 20. The council appointed Dr. Barry Fillman to that board back in November.
On the subject of the water authority, the question was asked about the forensic audit of the authority’s books which council sought last year. Cebulskie said the necessary paperwork has been submitted to the auditors, but the actual audit could be delayed because of the busy tax season.
Council member Ralph “Tucker” August asked that the authority be notified that it needed to pave the area of Fifth Street beside Mike’s BILO this spring. The street was patched after the authority repaired a major water line break in the area in November of last year.
August also praised borough crew members Dave Troutman and Joe Weyent for their efforts in keeping the streets clear during a heavy December snowstorm.
