The Forest City Borough Council drew some constructive criticism from Paul Mihelc, borough Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC), for failing to adequately cope with a disaster declaration during the Valentine’s Day Blizzard.
Mihelc said he could understand that the borough declared the disaster to cut through the red tape in securing services to assist in snow removal. But he said the borough must be prepared to activate the response and recover aspects of any or all applicable local emergency plans.
There is generally much laughter at a Montrose Borough meeting, as the council members sport a healthy sense of humor. This enlivens the meetings, but does not keep business from being done. The March 5 meeting was no exception, as amidst jokes several serious issues were dealt with.
Two of the visitors at the meeting were representatives of the Montrose Library and Historical Society. They brought with them a PowerPoint presentation, and used it to outline some of the services which the Library offers to the community. Although funding cuts have caused the library to eliminate some of its adult programs, it still has many resources and initiatives available to the public. From a Babies and Books program to on-line ancestry research aides and other research databases, it promotes life-long learning. It provides books to nursing homes, home-schoolers, daycares, and the jail. They are hoping to move to a new building, but assured those present that the old building on the square will continue to be in use, only with the entire building then serving as the historical society museum. The presentation was very informative, and at its conclusion library card applications were given to the council members and visitors who lacked one.
