Middletown Borough Council will now meet on Wednesdays, won't conflict with school board

Posted

Middletown Borough Council will now meet on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, unless otherwise noted, instead of on the first and third Tuesdays.

The time will remain 7 p.m.

The change was sought by Councilor Dawn Knull, who earlier told council she wants to be able to attend Middletown Area School Board meetings but cannot because the school board meetings are also on the first and third Tuesdays of each month.

Richard Kluskiewicz and Scott Sites both expressed concerns over changing the meeting dates to satisfy one councilor, and were joined by Ian Reddinger in opposing the move.

However, Ellen Willenbecher supported the change, saying the school board is “another important governing body” and that borough residents, councilors included, should not have to choose between attending one or the other because they are on the same night.
