Moving Forward Together as a Community
POTTSTOWN, PA – Last night’s Pottstown School Board meeting did not disappoint. As he mentioned to taxpayers Wednesday morning outside his Feist Avenue home, Board President Rick Huss announced his President’s Task Force Commission, which will be comprised of a team of school district leaders and Pottstown citizens to decide, as a group, what the future holds for Pottstown’s elementary schools.
The Mercury, late last night, posted a brief report of the meeting and will be posting additional information (and a video!) later today and in upcoming print editions. You can read the article here:
Our good cyberspace buddy Roy’s Rants also posted a report on last night’s meeting. You can read his post here. Mo over at Pottstown’s Blog also has some good observations. You can read her post here.
During the two and a half hour plus meeting, more than a dozen citizens voiced their concerns to the board regarding the proposal to apply for federal stimulus funds. Only one individual asked the board to move forward with the loan application for the federal funds.
Solicitor Stephen Kalis reported to the board on his Sunshine Law findings. And one of the most notable actions taken last night was the move by the board to make the Neighborhood Schools Committee a sub-committee of the Facilities Committee. The Facilities Committee is chaired by board member Robert Hartman, Jr.
Thank you to all concerned citizens who attended last night’s meeting. As reported by The Mercury, over 50 people attended the meeting. Nice job folks!
