Greencastle has a vacancy on borough council, due to the resignation of Mark Singer. Under the Pennsylvania State Borough Code, when a vacancy occurs, the council must fill it within 30 days by appointing a citizen of the borough.  That person would hold the office until the first Monday in January following the next regularly scheduled municipal election, which will be in November 2011.

Any person interested in the post should submit a letter to the Greencastle Borough Council no later than Tuesday, Dec. 28.  This letter should state the applicant's reasons for wanting to be appointed and provide a brief description of qualifications.  Any registered elector in Greencastle is eligible if they have resided in the borough for at least one year.  Council members must reside in the Borough while serving.
