Council Applauds Firemen

June 4, 2014
BROOKVILLE- Brookville Council last night praised the borough’s volunteer firemen for their rapid response to a structure fire Sunday morning.  The fire started in a garage adjacent to two homes on Erma Circle while the owner was doing a welding project. While the blaze destroyed the garage and damaged parts of each home’s siding, the fire department’s quick response in large numbers saved a bad situation from getting worse.

Council also approved an employment agreement with new borough manager Dana Schreckengost and welcomed her to her first official meeting. Schreckengost succeeds former manager Chuck Gable who resigned to take the same position in Gettysburg.

A proposal by councilman Phil Hynes was approved to purchase directional signs pointing visitors to the Redbank Valley Rail Trail in the borough. Signage was one of the first orders of business for Brookville’s new Trail Town committee.

And, following an executive session for personnel, council approved the re-hiring of Mary Jane Allshouse as a meter attendant on a temporary basis, and activating the borough’s Civil Service Commission for the testing of candidates for future police officer positions.
