Christmas comes early to the Alburtis Pool. To accentuate the occasion, the corridor in the bathhouse is illuminated with Christmas lights and decorated with Christmas stockings.
Macungie Borough Council passed the long awaited internal affairs policy for the police department Aug. 5, realizing a goal Chief Ed Harry has championed for over three years.
Harry testified to council that in the few weeks since Gary Cordner was appointed interim mayor, the two have met for more time than Cordner's predecessor Rickie Hoffman had. In that time the mayor and the chief have worked closely, and Harry, though he did not speak for the mayor, assured council Cordner was aware of and agreeable to the policy.
At their July 31 meeting, Council approved the borough's contract with J. P. Mascaro & Sons for residential garbage collection for another year with an increase of $1.25 per person per quarter.
Mascaro representative Sam Augustine thanked council and said the company would continue to give back through their donations to support community activities like the annual Alburtis 5K run, Alburtis Night Out and other events.
Councilperson John Aleszczyk said he opposed the contract renewal because he did not know the other options available.
