At the July meeting of the Forest City Borough Council, Pauline Wilcox, a Salvation Army volunteer, announced plans to open a storefront office on Main Street in Forest City. Wilcox explained that the office will be open regularly, with limited hours each week. Dumping will be prohibited. Wilcox highlighted some activities of the Salvation Army, including the Angel Food Christmas Program, which served about 90 Forest City children last year. In addition, Wilcox attempts to involve needy area children in Camp Ladore and provides assistance to victims of domestic violence. Wilcox expects to have the Forest City office running within the next month and hopes to maintain an emergency food pantry and a school clothing and book bag closet. Wilcox describes her work as offering a “hand up” to make needy individuals a “part of the community.” “I think you’re doing a tremendous job,” Mary Twilley stated. Several other Council members concurred.
Discussion was held at the July 6 Montrose Borough meeting regarding the park, which was recently vandalized. A mess was made on the slide, the pavilion had to be taken care of, etc. There was further talk of cameras to monitor the space, which could transmit to the borough office. Also, when the problem of purposeful littering was raised, it was pointed out that this action can lead to a $300 fine. Some involved in the recent vandalism, which included human waste on the slide, were caught. Council asked the police to try and enforce the policy of banning those perpetrating such behavior from the park in the future, in addition to other penalties they might face.
