The Great Bend Borough Council will be undergoing some changes soon as a consequence of the recent elections. Four seats on the 7-member council were contested. Long-time members Mike Wasko and Bea Alesky will relinquish their seats at the table to Ruth Loucks and Mike VanGorden.
Shane Rumage actually won the vote for a seat, but he also won a seat on the Blue Ridge School Board. Also a borough representative on the board of the Hallstead-Great Bend Joint Sewer Authority, Mr. Rumage said he thought he could handle everything, but then decided that it was too much. The law also doesn’t allow him to occupy two elected positions simultaneously, so he decided to take the school board seat. Council members reminded him that a borough council seat pays more than the school board.
On November 2, a man attending a Forest City Borough meeting posed a request for a handicapped parking sign at his home on Delaware Street. A copy of his doctor’s note has been placed on file at the borough building. The man stated to Council that he has various chronic medical conditions and recently has been diagnosed with a crippling disease. “I haven’t asked for too much from the city,” he added. Council pointed out that a sign will not necessarily guarantee a private parking place, since anyone with a handicapped plate can park in that spot. A motion to post a sign failed for lack of a second.
