Editor’s note: And also due to the tireless efforts of Jason Bobst, Janice Lee and Dan Weand for fixing the broken accounting system. Imagine what Pottstown could become if Council President Toroney followed the ULI Report recommendations!
POTTSTOWN — Borough Council President Stephen Toroney credited a 2009 consultant report on the borough’s finances for starting Pottstown down the road to what he considers a landmark achievement, that was made official Monday with the adoption of a $38.5 million that does not raise borough taxes for the first time in recent memory.
Councilman Mark Gibson, who, as a paid driver for the Empire Fire Company could be said to benefit financially by voting for the budget, which makes contributions to the fire companies, abstained from the vote.
But the budget, officially balanced at $38,530,729, otherwise received unanimous support from the remainder of council.
