MONTGOMERY - For boroughs, keeping records, such as where taxable parcels are, employee payroll and minutes of meetings, are vital to daily operations.
So much so that borough council here Tuesday wanted to comply with a state law requiring municipalities to retain such records for public and employee use.
"We discussed and passed on first reading an ordinance having to do with records retention," said Borough Manager John Lynch.
"Some records are required to be kept five years, and some for 10 years, while records on taxes are with us forever," he said.
In other happenings, the borough quasquicentennial is to be celebrated Aug. 9, 10 and 11.
That's the 125th anniversary since the borough's inception, Lynch said.
A communitywide celebration will be held at the borough's community park and fire company grounds, he said.
