Brockway Borough Says Goodbye to Student Representative, Gets Paving Bids

BROCKWAY, Pa. (EYT) – The Brockway Borough Council bid farewell to its senior student council representative during its regular meeting last Thursday.

The student representative allows juniors and seniors from Brockway Area School District to participate in local politics and represent the school.  Angelo Inzana was the junior representative last year and served as senior this year, but he graduates on May 27. Jordan Faith is the current junior representative.

“I wanted to thank the council for letting me be a part of this since my junior year,” Inzana said. “It was a nice feeling being able to represent my fellow students and relay to them what’s been going on in our community. It’s a great experience.”

“It’s been extremely important for the kids from the high school to be involved in council,” Councilman Mike Martino added.  “It’s a direct link between what’s going on out here in the community and what’s going on in the school.  Angelo has done a great job the past to years and we’re looking forward to bringing new people in as the years go by.”

In other business, the council received bids for upcoming paving projects.

HRI Incorporated came in as the lowest bid at $59,470.  The solicitor and committee need to look at the bid before fully accepting it.  Of the three bids, HRI was the lowest responsible bidders.

The council also got an update from the Brockway Historical Society.  Jim Jackson told the council that the new construction at the Taylor Memorial Museum is scheduled to be completed before July 4.  The museum is adding a handicapped ramp, a front porch, a new roof, and benches.  

July 4 also came up in Police Chief Terry Young’s report.  Young explained that the department is looking at some new plans to improve the flow of traffic before and after the parade and fireworks.

The council adopted the previously-advertised zoning ordinance and amendments.  

In an odd turn of events, the council had to rescind motions to appoint Lu Inzana as an auditor.  Inzana has been appointed to fill a vacant seat on the council, so he cannot serve as auditor.  The council then appointed Joe Baka in his place.

The fire department only had three calls in the borough since last meeting.  They ran a training with Pine Creek K9 Search and Rescue to see what the dogs can offer Brockway in an emergency.  Also, three borough fire fighters will complete the basics training course in three weeks.

The council meets again June 7 at 7 p.m.
