The Council President appoints chairpersons of any particular committee. The Chairman is the key person for their respective appointed committee. However, the Borough Council meets as a whole on the third Monday of each Month. There is no official action taken at these meetings, which are intended to serve as a means of discussing issues and for the exchange and sharing of ideas and information.
Other Boards and Commissions provide an opportunity for residents to become active in their community. They typically provide recommendations to the Borough Council, assisting them in enacting or amending legislation. Members of these boards and commissions serve on a volunteer basis.
The President of Borough Council shall serve as a member Ex-officio of all committees and shall receive notice of any and all meetings. The Mayor will be notified of all committee and other meetings of Council and will be invited to participate.
