As approved at the 6/6/16 meeting minutes of 5/16/16 follow:
The Riverside Borough Council met on Monday, May 16, 2016 in the Municipal Building, 301 Dewart Street, Riverside, PA. Council President John J. Novak called the meeting to order promptly at 7:00 pm.
In attendance this evening were Vice President Peter T Fleming, Council Members Barb Kriner, Beth Hancock, Caressa Compton and Carolyn Bausch as well as Mayor Joseph Oberdorf and Secretary Deborah Bausch. Absent this evening was Council Member John Domanski.
In the audience this evening were resident Earl Martz and two students, Giavonna Fracalossi and Alexander Ackerman. The students were here to observe the council meeting as part of a school Environmental Science class.
Earl Martz addressed Council regarding the Elementary School and possibly making it a community center area. Mr. Martz spoke with Michelle Dunsberger, who spearheaded another similar project and would be willing to give us some guidance on the process. Much discussion followed regarding the wants/needs of the community and if there is enough local interest to make it feasible to go further with a discussion. Contact would need to be made with the Danville School district to see their future intent for the building. Currently it is used for storage.
Old Business began with the Minutes of May 2, 2016 being approved on a Motion by Barb Kriner and seconded by Carolyn Bausch. All voted in Favor. Another agenda item was the position of the Welcome to Riverside sign at the English Garden intersection. Sign needs placed to reflect that you are entering Riverside Borough and shrubbery around sign needs removed/trimmed. Streets Department will be contacted to look at the sign and how to reposition it.
Brian Anderson then presented the Zoning Report for April. He stated his scheduled hours on Tuesday has not resulted in any residents coming in for permits. This has just recently been put in effect. Council has agreed to stop the Tuesday scheduled hours at the end of May. Report was approved on a Motion by Carolyn Bausch and seconded by Barb Kriner. All voted in favor.
Barb Kriner then presented the Southside Fire Company Report. She also provided a letter regarding the upcoming Southside Fire Company carnival which is scheduled for May 24 - 28, 2016. The Toy and Pet Parade is to be held on Wednesday at 6:30 pm; Police department was given a copy of the letter for their reference. Parade will begin forming at 6 pm at St Peter’s UMC parking lot. Report was approved on a Motion by Caressa Compton and seconded by Beth Hancock. All voted in favor.
New business this evening concerned Joshua Owens, Larson Design Group engineer. He is handling the plans for the proposed houses to be built on the Bostian property along Sunbury Road. Larson Design Group is the borough’s engineer firm; however, it was felt there was no conflict of interest in this project. Approval for Joshua Owens to work on the project was granted on a Motion by Barb Kriner and seconded by Carolyn Bausch. All voted in favor except Peter Fleming who abstained from voting as a possible conflict in working with the project.
At 7:25 pm, Barb Kriner made a Motion to adjourn council to an Executive Session. Second was made by Peter Fleming and council proceeded into an Executive Session.
At approximately 7:35 pm, Caressa Compton made a Motion to Adjourn the Executive Session and return to Regular Council Session. Motion Seconded by Beth Hancock. Council resumed Session.
