Austin Borough News - Setzer Appointed Mayor

Due to the passing of Philip VanWhy, the Austin Borough Council met Monday night and elected Jimmy Setzer as our new mayor.  This was a very difficult decision by all members of the council as we had two (2) exceptional candidates apply for the position.  Darwin Manning was the other candidate.  Both gentlemen are hard-working,community-minded individuals.  It is hoped that Darwin decides to run for Borough Council during the next election.

 Also noteworthy is that Councilwoman Victoria Setzer, sister-in-law to Jimmy, abstained from voting.  She is to be commended for making that decision.
