Williamsburg Borough Amends Personnel Policy


An “unclear” policy in regards to vacation time was amended during the May 6 Williamsburg Borough Council meeting.

The policy, which affected both police personnel and borough employees, needed to be amended because of the five-year time limit being on both the 10-day vacation period and the 15-day vacation period.

The new amendment says that between two and four years of employment with the borough, an employee earns 10 vacation days a year; with five to 10 years of employment, the employee earns 15. Jon Detwiler made the motion to accept this amendment with Matthew Sabol seconding; motion passed.

There was a discussion on installation of speed humps in the alley between Sage Hill Drive and Third Street due to numerous complaints about speeding in the area. Borough Manager Joe Lansberry was instructed to look up pricing for the speed humps while Chief of Police Rowdy Kagarise promised to patrol alley more to see if police presence in area helps situation.

The Williamsburg Football Parade was approved for Tuesday, Aug. 28.

Dave McFarland from the Blair County Planning Commission was on hand to discuss writing a new comprehensive plan for the borough and Woodbury and Catharine townships. The last comprehensive plan for these areas was written in the 1970s.
