East Greenville Council Votes to Purchase New Police Car
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            East Greenville Council voted Monday to replace a damaged police vehicle with a new one. During their first meeting of 2022, the members agreed to spend $35,275 to buy a 2022 Ford Interceptor.

            The new vehicle is necessary due to a traffic crash involving a borough police officer early last month, according to council President Angie Fegely. After the meeting, she did not disclose any additional details, including the name of the officer, the time and date, or location, of the incident.

            Administrative Manager Jim Fry also refused to comment further after the meeting, claiming that the borough's negotiations with its insurance company have not been completed.

            He said that municipal officials bought the new vehicle through COSTARS, Pennsylvania's cooperative purchasing program, from a Ford Dealership in New Holland.

            As part of its reorganization, held prior to the regular meeting, the board voted unanimously to re-elect Fegely as council president. The members also re-elected John Dingler as the vice president and named Doug Criddle as the President Pro Tempore.

            Sharon Kachmar, council's secretary/treasurer and a Notary Public, simultaneously swore in the borough's four recently elected members: Fegely, Dingler, Ryan Pugh and Joe Rock. Mayor Stephen Wescott, who also won re-election, did not attend the meeting.

            In personnel news, council reappointed several residents to municipal boards. Greg Gadreau received a one-year term as chair of the Vacancy Board. Jeremy Schultz Arnold will serve three additional years on the Zoning Hearing Board. Paige Konopelsky was appointed to the Upper Perk Library Board.

            Prior to the public meeting, the members meet in an executive session that lasted 41 minutes. They discussed personnel issues, according to Fegely.

            The borough's police department responded to 110 total incidents in December. Information posted on a bulletin board outside the meeting room identified 31 incidents of traffic, 18 for public service, six for theft, five assists, two for animals, two warrants, and one each for a domestic incident and fire incident. Information collected by Chief Randy Morris identified 44 incidents as "other".
