To the editor: In my absence from this monthly meeting I wanted to address a few issues that have been repeated without justification:

The first issue is police coverage. The present council has worked the last four years to maintain and staff our police department in every aspect pertaining to protection. Prior to the last four-to-five years, we have had one full-time officer with various part-timers for a period close to ten years. For a two-year period, we worked diligently with Mount Carmel Township to try to merge our two departments. Presently, we are investigating a regionalization plan with our neighboring municipalities to strengthen police coverage.
