“We know this was a swampy-type area.” Thus Jerry MacConnell characterized the historical geography of the place now known as Great Bend Borough. The little town nestled in a sweeping curve of the Susquehanna River has been understandably preoccupied with water for most of its 150-year life. The latest major inundation, in June of 2006, isolated the place, and Mr. MacConnell is determined to keep that from happening again.

Council members have been assigned to committees in order to manage administration and finance, buildings, grounds and parks, public works, personnel, and public safety. In order to maximize public access, borough residents will receive information cards listing committees and phone numbers.
