Montoursville Borough Council approved the suspension of one employee during a special meeting Wednesday afternoon and said another is being evaluated.
Council suspended the employment of Lenora Georges, borough secretary and treasurer, according to council President Robert C. Brobson.
Although council did not elaborate, Brobson said Georges was in her probationary period and was not performing her duties as expected.
In April, council unanimously voted to hire Georges, and councilman Eugene Boyles was named as assistant secretary. Georges replaced Dennis Holt after his abrupt suspension in April, that left many borough residents angry.
One resident asked if the position would be advertised or if council would fit a friend into the position.
Brobson said council does not have anyone in mind for the position and it will be advertised.
"There is no law or regulation that requires us to advertise. But, we do intend to advertise for the positions that we have no viable candidates for, unless we do promote from within. We are not trying to do anything sneaky here, we are just trying to answer your questions and trying to address your concerns," Brobson said.
Rodney Heindel, the borough's permit officer, also learned that his position is being evaluated by council.
"We are evaluating his position and his duties. (We are doing it) because we feel it should be done periodically and address the areas that we want him to perform and maybe what we don't want him to perform. Maybe (he is) more suited in other departments," Brobson said.
In other personnel matters, Boyles was appointed as the right-to-know officer because the current one, Claire Ann Sharp, is retiring Friday.
Ginny Gardner was appointed as the assistant right-to-know officer.
Chris Logue, senior project engineer for Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc., requested an additional 25 feet on the north side of the Sooner Pipe shop, located on the industrial section of the airport.
"(The addition) will allow for a second threadline. Also, they are going to have a canopy over the existing proposed concrete pad that is on the left side of the building," Logue said.
The facility will be housed on the industrial section of the airport.
Council unanimously voted to approve the plans, provided the planning commission approves it.
Council approved a $56,500 project to replace a reservoir in the borough. The project cost came in under what the borough was expecting to pay, according to Boyles.
The next borough meeting will be at 7 p.m. June 7.
