 Council Members and Appointed Officials

Council's major duties include the enactment of legislation, the raising and spending of public money, land use regulation, and the provision of public services. Within Selinsgrove Borough, these public services include sanitary sewer and public water services.

By law, Council must meet at least once a month to conduct its business. Pennsylvania's "Sunshine Act" requires that Council take all official actions in public at such a meeting and that the public be notified and provided an opportunity to comment at these meetings.

This "Sunshine Act" also applies to the various subcommittees of Council. These committees each deal with a substantial area of Borough Government and also hold public meetings to deliberate about issues within their respective areas and to make recommendations for action to the full Council.

All of Council's powers are prescribed by Pennsylvania statutes, particularly the Pennsylvania Borough Code. In general, Council is empowered to adopt ordinances and regulations in the interest of the health, safety and general welfare of the residents. In Selinsgrove Borough , the members of Council receive no compensation.
