Pottstown May Join In At Month’s Municipal Conference
EAST NORRITON PA – Pottstown borough officials may be part of a party Lower Pottsgrove is throwing later this month. Actually, it’s just a conference and dinner meeting being conducted by an organization of which both he borough and township are members, and for which Lower Pottsgrove is host.
Either way, Lower Pottsgrove Board of Commissioners‘ President Jonathan Spadt says, “it’s a cool thing.”
The fall conference of the Montgomery County Association of Township Officials is hosted annually by one of its 40 member-municipalities. This year is Lower Pottsgrove’s turn, and it and its municipal neighbors alike are expected to be on hand Sept. 30 (2011; Friday) at Presidential Caterers, 2910 Dekalb Pike, East Norriton PA, just northwest of Norristown, to launch the activities.
Spadt, who announced the event during his board’s Sept. 6 meeting, quickly noted there was no added cost to Lower Pottsgrove in serving as host. “It’s a bit of a feather in our cap, though,” Spadt added. “We’ll get a little recognition on a county-wide level.”
MCATO serves primarily as an advocacy organization for municipal interests locally and statewide. It was founded in 1977 as the Supervisors and Auditors Association of Montgomery County, and was re-named a year later.
