“Not only has the Borough Manager been disrespected, but I believe this council is being shafted,” said Dede.
Several questions arose during the discussion including uncertainty over who would assume Borough Manager duties.
The council also voted not to renew the contract of Solicitor Stephen French.
Mr. French told the council that he did not want his name submitted for reappointment at the next meeting.
There is no word on when the vacated positions will be filled.
