EXETER —Borough Council on Tuesday approved the formation of a committee to explore different paths to improve the borough’s downtown.
Councilman Larry Dellegrotto said he hopes the committee will be able to work with business owners and residents to improve the appearance and overall quality of the central part of the borough along Wyoming Avenue.
He pointed to Exeter’s neighbor across the Susquehanna River, Pittston, as an example of how a community can come together to improve its business district.
Council held Tuesday night’s regular monthly meeting under its new standard format.
While meetings will continue to be held on the first Tuesday of each month, they will now start immediately after work sessions to be held at 6:30 p.m. The work sessions had previously been held at 7 p.m. on the final Tuesday of each month.
In other matters, the borough accepted the resignation of part-time police officer Frank Oakenridge, who left the force to take a position as a full-time officer in Plains Township.
The next regular meeting of council will be immediately after the public work session beginning at 6:30 p.m.
