Petition asks that post be abolished


A resident presented a petition with 187 signatures that asks Middletown Borough Council to abolish its $50,000-a-year position of director of communcations, proposing the borough instead use the money to hire a codes enforcement officer.


Dawn Knull told council on Monday, April 7 that she obtained the signatures in nine hours of circulating the petition.


Council took no action. Last month, it voted 5-4 to keep the position.
