Four residents were sworn into Trappe Borough Council Monday while one member’s resignation was announced, creating a vacancy.
Cathy Johnson, Nevin Scholl and Tammy Liberi returned to their seats on the board, and newcomer Pat Webster was sworn in for the first time.
Scholl was elected president of the board, and Johnson will serve as vice president.
Lew DiPrete resigned his position on borough council, causing a vacancy through Dec. 31, 2015.
DiPrete was a member of “Trappe’s Trusted Team,” consisting of former board president Fred Schuetz, vice president Paul Edwards, and Marshall Stomel, who lost his post in the Republican Primary in May. After holding the majority last year, only Schuetz and Edwards remain on the board.
Anyone interested in filling the position should forward a resume and letter of interest to borough manager Jacqui.email@example.com
Mayor Connie Peck and Tax Collector Gretchen Lawson were also sworn in; council voted to retain Hladik, Onorato & Pearlstine as solicitor.
