SHENANDOAH - Shenandoah council has two new members, a new president, and a new vice president after their reorganization meeting Monday night.
The short meeting at borough hall began with Mayor Andrew J. Szczyglak presiding.
The first order of business was to swear in the two newly elected council members -- Eileen Burke and William Selbi -- and re-elected member John Thomas. Szczyglak swore the three in.
Next was the nomination and election of a council president. Councilman J.P. Dombrosky nominated Gordon Slater, seconded by ex-president Leo Pietkiewicz.
Slater was elected unanimously.
"Meeting is yours, Gordon," Szczyglak said, inviting Slater to chair the meeting.
"I'd like to say, welcome aboard to Will and Eileen," Slater said. "I also appreciate the support that my fellow council members had in me to serve as president of council."
Slater then asked for nominations for vice president. Burke nominated Dombrosky, seconded by Thomas. The vote to elect Dombrosky was unanimous.
Bob Wasilewski was re-elected unanimously as President Pro Tem. Pietkiewicz explained that, if both president and vice president cannot serve, Wasilewski, who is not a member of council, will fill in to run the council meetings.
"It's always somebody outside of council," said Pietkiewicz.
Slater was authorized via a unanimous vote to assign subcommittees for the next council meeting.
