Pottstown Borough Council Approves New Planning Commission Member

Pottstown Borough Council accepted, with regret, the resignation of Karen Weil from the Pottstown Planning Commission effective March 1, 2011.

The next motion on the agenda asked Council to approve Ms. Weil’s replacement.  Planning Commission Chair, Dan Weand recommended Dan Schmoyer, who submitted his application last month when Mr. Hylton’s seat was up for grabs and went to Andrew Kefer.  Mr. Schmoyer resides in the 1300 block of Queen Street.

Council unanimously approved Mr. Schmoyer to the Planning Commission, to fill Karen Weil’s unexpired term, until February 1, 2013.

Several councilors expressed their appreciation for the years of service Karen Weil gave to Pottstown Borough.

Pottstown Planning Commission To Get Another New Member

Long-time Pottstown political figure, Karen Weil has resigned her seat on the Pottstown Planning Commission effective March 1st.  Karen felt it was time to step down after many years of service.

It appears this newest vacancy will be filled by one of the four remaining applicants who submitted resumes when Thomas Hylton was up for reappointment last month.  Technically, Mr. Hylton would be included in the four remaining applicants for Ms. Weil’s seat.

Last month, Andrew Kefer was unanimously appointed to the Planning Commission to fill Mr. Hylton’s seat when Mr. Hylton was not reappointed by Borough Council.  Mr. Kefer is a Chestnut Street resident and neighbor of Thomas Hylton.
