Brockway, PA – Although most guests come to city council meetings with a problem or a complaint, Brockway Borough Council got a visit from some residents last night who just wanted to show their gratitude.

Residents along Main Street came to the meeting to thank the council and the street crews for how well they have taken care of the borough during the winter. Residents are especially happy with the way the borough is maintaining the sidewalks when ice makes it difficult for the residents to clear them on their own.

In other business, the council heard an update from the fire department that it has responded to eight calls for 2019, two since the last meeting.  Also, a member of the zoning board resigned, so the council is looking to fill that position.

Police Chief Terry Young asked the council to sign a countywide mutual aid agreement.  The borough already has similar agreements.  This will cover any time a neighboring municipality needs assistance.  It gives the assisting departments the ability to help and even issue citations.  The council approved it pending a review by the solicitor.

Chief Young explained how the agreement worked.

The council will meet again March 7.
