Do you already
The November 9 meeting of the Montrose school board was so well attended that it was moved into the cafeteria, from its normal location in the community learning center. By the time the work session began, all but three of these visitors had left. It was jokingly pointed out that even of these three, two were paid to be in attendance (members of the press). The largest reason for the unusual crowd stemmed, apparently, from contract negotiations with the support staff. The members of this group did not speak up at the meeting; one woman explained that the point was more to make a show of solidarity than to speak out that night.
The major topic of discussion at the November 12 meeting of the Oakland Boro Council was the budget for 2010. The proposed budget does not reflect a tax increase or an increase in water rates. It also includes a wage increase for the boro secretary and maintenance supervisor, neither of which have received an increase in the last two years. Also included is an additional three hours per week for the Codes Enforcement Officer, at the current rate of pay. Fire protection for the year will be $7,500, only slightly increased from last year. There was some discussion regarding the wage increases; it was agreed to continue the discussion during an executive session following the meeting.
