The April 6 Montrose Borough meeting realized an almost full council room. Various visitors were present to discuss matters of importance to them.
Ilona Scroggins attended the meeting to update council on progress made toward the park watch and potential summer program she proposed in the fall. Ms. Scroggins stated that she had begun walking around the borough talking to residents living near the park, with mixed results. Most of those not interested in becoming involved in a park watch, she stated, were fearful of repercussions which their reports might bring, and were concerned that their referrals would not be kept confidential. She was able to begin an e-mail list of those who were interested in taking part in the initiative, and planned on continuing canvassing the area in coming days. The police chief assured those present that reports to the police are confidential, with police even trying, generally, to call about reports rather than driving to the house and taking a statement as a visible presence.
The Susquehanna County Commissioners had a busy meeting which included a number of resolutions, proclamations, authorizations, compliance statements and a report from the Syracuse, NY based “Seneca Group” which manages the retirement funds from Susquehanna County.
Although the Seneca Group made their presentation in the “Retirement Meeting”, I thought it important to mention that although the group now, finally presents the Commissioners with their reports ahead of time (so the Commissioners may examine them before the actual meeting), both the Commissioners and the Seneca Group have not provided (nor have any intention of providing) the media nor taxpayers with anything other than a “canned statement” regarding the handling, use and anything else regarding their monetary responsibilities. They even had to be asked for their own press release and handed three reporters one copy. Thankfully, Commissioner Warren left the meeting to make enough copies.
