  1. This meeting ended with a decision to not to adjourn after the executive session. The follow up meeting was to take place last night at 8:15 pm. Multiple community members showed up for the meeting last night to see a sign on the door indicating that meeting had been cancelled. The borough needs a better way to communicate with the public regarding these things. I am assuming that there will be an attempt to communicate when this follow up meeting will be taking place in a way that is easily accessible to the public and not just a sign posted on the borough building door.
