At the July 23rd Elk Lake School Board meeting, Mrs. Teel welcomed, early in the meeting, Mr. Weisgold, the new elementary principal. Dr. Cuomo also welcomed him.
During the administrators’ reports portion of the meeting, Mrs. Staats related that the extended school year program was going very well. That Thursday she had met with a point of contact for the state, who was to come and talk about the new classroom the district was hoping to open. The state wanted to make sure that the room wouldn’t be smaller than normal. The new room was planned to be in the elementary school, perhaps next door to the nurse.
A representative of ESE Equity was at the Montrose Borough Council’s second meeting of the month, after having been unable to have his request acted upon at the first due to a lack of quorum.
The representative, Joe Hunt, was seeking noncomforming/conditional use for the Montrose Publishing building. It was noted that Mr. Granahan would have to abstain from any vote, as he was on the board of the clinic that it was hoped would be one of the tenants of the building. It was thought at first that this would mean there was again no quorum for a vote, but it was then pointed out that even if he abstained Mr. Granahan was present- thus establishing the quorum. Council still couldn’t pass the request however, it was explained, as a hearing would be needed. The motion was made to advertise a hearing for the August 4th meeting.
