Petersburg Borough Assembly holds first meeting

Petersburg’s new borough assembly and mayor were sworn into office Monday night. They addressed a long list of issues during their first official meeting. That included two borough-wide tax measures, which the assembly passed in first reading. Among other decisions, they also set a temporary meeting schedule aimed at making it easier for newly-incorporated residents to attend regular assembly sessions. Matt Lichtenstein reports:

Borough Clerk Kathy O’Rear (far right) swears in Petersburg’s first borough assembly. They are standing, from left to right, Nancy Strand, John Hoag, Mark Jensen, Sue Flint, and John Havrilek. Borough Manager Steve Giesbrecht is seated at center.
