Middletown residents appointed to three borough boards

Posted

Middletown Borough Council recently appointed residents to serve on three different boards and commissions.

Earl Bright III was appointed Jan. 2 to a one-year term on the vacancy board, to expire on Dec. 31, 2018.

The board gets involved in cases in which there is a vacancy on council, or where a vacancy has occurred in the office of mayor, tax collector, auditor, controller or assessor.

If council cannot fill the vacancy within 30 days, the board — comprised of the rest of council plus one registered elector of the borough, in this case Bright, who serves as chairman — has 15 days to fill the vacancy.

If the board cannot fill the vacancy within 15 days, the vacancy board chair petitions county court to fill the seat.

Also, council appointed Jeffrey Benson of the 1000 block of Vine Street to serve on the planning commission from Jan. 1, 2018, to Dec. 31, 2021.

Benson’s appointment leaves one remaining vacancy on the five-member planning commission, which also consists of David Grabuloff, Kristen Kyler and Scott Sites.

Appointed to the Historical Restoration Commission was Robert Hauser of the first block of Brown Street, from Jan. 1, 2018 through Dec. 31, 2019.

Hauser replaces Jenny Miller. She resigned after being elected to council in November.

Also on the commission are Rachelle Reid, Tim Carn, Nancy Taxweiler, Keshia Punugula, Joanna Cain and John Grayshaw.
