Daniel W. Barnes appointed to Honesdale Borough Council

Jennings announced that the Civil Service Commission has found Police Commissioner Rick Southerton qualified as a Pennsylvania policeman, following successful completion of his training and competency testing. Introducing a resolution to change Southerton’s title to Police Chief and appoint him to a one-year probationary term, Jennings argued with Smith over whether or not Southerton would be a member of the collective bargaining unit. They were advised by borough solicitor Richard Henry that the precise terms of the appointment could be changed at a later date by amendment of the resolution. The resolution passed, with Canfield abstaining.
