HUGHESTOWN — Hughestown Borough Council held its first regular council meeting of the year Monday with some municipal officials in new roles.

Wayne Quick Jr., a 14-year member of the council, has given up his seat to server as the mayor, following November’s election in which he ran unopposed.

He takes over for Paul Hindmarsh who had served as mayor since 1989.

Councilman Robert Gable, who is in the fourth year of his first term, has taken Quick’s seat as council president.

Ed Yuhas is the council’s newest member. The 57-year-old Swoyersville native and Keystone Automotive worker has lived in Hughestown for the past 26 years.

Prior to his election to the council in November, Yuhas has had no experience in local government.

In other matters, officials confirmed that recent state traffic study results suggest there is no need to reduce the speed limit from 35 mph on Center, Rock and Parsonage streets.

The next council meeting is set for Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m.
