The Borough of Edinboro Council held meetings Dec. 9 and Jan. 6. At the December meeting, Borough Manager Kevin Opple gave a monthly report, which included updating the status of census planning.

According to the meeting minutes, Opple has worked with the Edinboro branch of the Erie County Public Library, scheduling times where computers will be available for the public to fill out the census. This will be held March 24 from 2-8 p.m. and April 9 from 2-8 p.m. at the borough council building.

Other business included the borough’s application for a grant of $25,000 that would go toward new playground equipment at Thompson Park.

According to the minutes, this new equipment would be part of an area revitalization planned for this upcoming summer.

“If awarded, we would still need to pay approximately $4,000, but would get a nice playground set including a swing, slide and a couple of climbing items for the money,” Opple said in his management report.

At the Jan 6. meeting, the following individuals were appointed to borough positions:
Mayor: Aaron Gast
Deputy Mayor: James L. Kiley
Solicitor: Timothy Wachter
Borough Manager: Kevin Opple

They filled these spots for the 2020-2022 term.

The next borough council meeting will take place Monday, Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. at the borough building. The meeting is open to the public.
