Editor’s note: Considering the same 5 square miles comprises the school district and the borough, this is well overdue. However, on a positive note, we will hope this leads to substantive change for the beleaguered Pottstown taxpayer.
POTTSTOWN — It won’t just be the location of the joint school board/borough council meeting Tuesday that is unusual.
The agenda is short, unusual in itself, and further, it is focused almost exclusively on breaking down barriers to cooperation.
“We want to set the stage for collaborating, for open communication,” said schools Superintendent Jeff Sparagana who, along with Borough Manager Mark Flanders, met with The Mercury Thursday to outline their efforts.
“That’s one of the reasons we wanted to have the meeting off-site,” said Flanders. “To put everyone in a setting that encourages participation and interaction.”
