East Lycoming re-elects board president at meeting

Richard Michael was re-elected as president and Richard Bradley as vice president of the East Lycoming School Board during its annual reorganization meeting Wednesday night.

Levi Woodward of the law firm McNerney, Page, Vanderlin & Hall, Williamsport, was re-appointed board solicitor.

Donna Gavitt was appointed the board’s legislative chairman and Michael Mamrak as board representative of the Lycoming Career & Technology Center.

Following the reorganization meeting, the board met in regular session to consider other business, including personnel issues.

The retirements of Leonard Romano, elementary school physical education teacher, and James Bower, secondary college and career coordinator, were approved by the board.

Romano’s retirement was effective Nov. 21.

Bower is retiring at the end of the school year.

Superintendent Michael Pawlik said the two will be missed.

Also at the meeting, business manager David Maciejewski reported to the board that earned income collections are showing decreases in recent years at East Lycoming and other area school districts.

He said the decreases could be due to the changing local business climate.

Maciejewski also reported that the board likely will start considering budget issues during upcoming meetings.

Pawlik reported to the board that the East Lycoming Little League asked the district to waive the $1,000 rental fee for field use. He noted that the league has done a lot of work on the field over the years.

The board met in executive session to consider personnel and legal matters.
