STEELTON, Pa. (WHTM) – The Steelton Borough Council held a public meeting Monday night. Many residents expressed concerns about borough officials not returning calls in a timely manner.
Council members answered several questions during public including matching funding for a youth program.
Borough Manager Sara Gellatly addressed issues that ABC 27 has raised recently, including a report that Gellatly and the police chief signed off on permits during a time when there was no codes officer in the borough.
The report sparked an investigation by the Department of Labor and Industry.
“We provided all the necessary documentation,” said Galletly, “And we have been cooperating fully with them.”
Monday morning, we asked the borough about Council meeting minutes not being transcribed in several months.
Galletly said they lost a secretary and they were not able to find someone on a regular basis who was able to transcribe the Council meeting minutes.
Galletly says she transcribed the minutes until the water issue required her to work 14 hours a day, but she says they recently found someone
who will be able to fill that role.
