Council members’ meeting attendance addressed

During the Feb. 20 Macungie Borough Council meeting, Council member Roseann Scheicher raised the issue of member presence at meetings. She noted when council meetings are not attended by its members, it is difficult to carry on with business, especially when there is not a quorum.

The last borough council meeting ended with unfinished business due to lack of a quorum with two loyal council members sick while two others with a bad attendance record did not attend again. This becomes a costly problem.

Seniors have a hot time with fire chief, arson K-9 Judge

Thursday, March 1, 2018 by DANIEL HAMM in Local News

Allentown Fire Chief Lee Laubach Jr. and Arson K-9, Judge, were the hot items on the agenda Feb. 1 at the monthly meeting of AARP Chapter 5415.

The fire safety presentation at St. Timothy’s Church, Allentown, provided the senior citizens with information on how Judge can actually sniff out a potential fire before it begins.

Judge demonstrated his skills by sniffing through a line of aluminum cans in search of the one containing an accelerant.

When Judge found the accelerant, he indicated the find to Laubach and was rewarded with a treat.
