Police department to add one more
Police chief John Phillippy was authorized to hire a part-time police
officer by Greencastle Borough Council Monday night. He recommended Jim
Bradley, a part-time officer in Chambersburg. It would take a month before
he actually reported for duty.
Phillippy said the new member of the force would work within the hours
allotted to the department¹s budget for the year. Borough manager Kenneth
Womack also cautioned that the new job was no presumption of fulltime
Harry Foley also asked about canine Rony¹s duties of late, specifically
whether he had been brought into the middle and high schools to walk the
halls. Phillippy said he would be glad to use the dog for his sniffing
abilities, but ³the only problem is we sort of need an invitation for that.²
In other business March 7, Marissa Burt from the Beautification Committee
showed council the snowflake decorations her group hoped to purchase for
next winter. They would replace the eight lanterns and scrolls currently in
the Center Square.
She explained that the LED lights were warranted for three seasons, and the
frames for six seasons. On sale for $209 each, she asked for authorization
to order them. The members present, Duane Kinzer, Charles Eckstine, James
Farley, Matthew Smith and Foley, gave her the go-ahead.
Council also set the next Bulk Drop Off Days for May 6 and 7.
