Clearfield Borough Council discussed some personnel changes in its police department at its committee meetings last night.
Full-time patrol officers Alex Burkett and Michael Klender and part-time patrol officer Cody Haag have resigned from the police department.
Burkett is entering the state police academy and Klender took a position with the City of St. Marys Police Department, according to Mayor Jim Schell.
The personnel committee recommended hiring David Hoover and Tyler Brahosky as full-time officers and Ethan Fritz as a part-time officer.
The personnel committee also voted to recommend hiring Anthony Johnson as a part-time meter attendant.
The recommendations will be voted on at next week’s borough council meeting.
In other business, borough operations manager Leslie Stott announced that the leaf vac the borough was planning to purchase ended up being more expensive than anticipated and was more than the roughly $75,000 in grant money the borough received to purchase it. So instead, street foreman Todd Kling found a less expensive leaf vac for $59,000 from Bradco Supply. Stott said she doesn’t know yet if or what they can use the remaining grant funds for.
Stott also reminded residents that the Clearfield Volunteer Fire Company his hosting an open house at the former 3rd Ward Fire Company. There will be food and refreshments at the event. The fire company has renovated the building and will be renting it out for events and will be taking reservations at the event.
