Editor’s note: I would say you get what you pay for but Mr. Flanders makes more money that many mayors of Pennsylvania’s largest cities. Then again, we are asked to believe that in the entire United States of America there is no one more qualified to run a borough of 22,377 people than the Pottstown Chief of Police. Interestingly enough, Pottstown’s crime rate is higher than many major cities in Pennsylvania. I wonder if that was the determining factor for his selection
POTTSTOWN — It is not uncommon for a new company or a new administration to try to re-boot their operation by sitting down and asking themselves “what is our mission?” or “what are our core values?”
Well, you can add the Borough of Pottstown to the list of those organizations.
And even though the borough’s mission statement and core values were updated as recently as Oct. 11, 2011, Borough Manager Mark Flanders has presented borough council with drafts of a new mission statement and new core values for the borough.
He wants to know what they think before they become official.
The mission statement discussion is on the agenda for Wednesday night’s borough council meeting.
