Reports presented, motions approved, concerned citizen heard


by John Vogt - February 12, 2019

The monthly Borough Council Meeting was held on On Monday, February 11th at the Borough Office building. During the meeting, Borough Council members listened to many reports and approved several motions.

During the Public Comments section of the meeting concerned citizen, Betty Ann Stevens addressed Council members on a messy and sensitive subject. Some of our Wellsboro Citizens are neglecting to pick up after their dog. Please take a moment to watch this broadcast for her comments and possible solutions presented by the Borough Council.

We want to extend a gentle reminder to all of our viewers with four-legged friends. Please be kind to other citizens and those visiting our community by cleaning up after your dog. Tourism is vital to our region. Working together to keep our town neat and clean benefits us all. So, don’t forget your scooper and plastic bag when walking your dog.

Borough Council Meetings are opened to the public and held on the second Monday of every month beginning at 6:00 PM unless otherwise stated. Thanks for joining us today on Wellsboro Home Page.
