SANATOGA PA – It didn’t happen quite as President Bruce Foltz apparently expected.
After its regular meeting ended earlier this month in the municipal building on Buchert Road, the Lower Pottsgrove Board of Commissioners held what it said would be a brief executive session regarding personnel. As they left for the session Foltz announced its members could return, officially re-assemble, and take a vote on the item being discussed.
A couple of visitors in the board audience decided they would hang around to see if anything developed. A majority of the crowd, including Post Managing Editor Joe Zlomek, went home. And, as it turns out, nothing happened.
“The board made no decisions. There was no vote,” township Manager Ed Wagner confirmed Wednesday (June 24, 2015).
So after their talk, commissioners all went home too.
Board discussions of some legal and personnel matters are allowed by state law in closed-door meetings, not attended by the public, under certain circumstances. Official action on any topic must be made only in public meetings.
