MERCERSBURG, Pa. - The Mercersburg Borough Council has hired an acting borough manager.
Barbara C. Deason, of Chambersburg, started working for the borough Monday at a rate of $15.50 an hour. She said her contract will be renegotiated. Until last year, she was manager of support services for the Pennsylvania Department of Banking in Harrisburg.
Saying they need to study the issue further, the council Tuesday night tabled their vote on a new ordinance to change the borough manager form of government to one that gives the council more control over day-to-day operations.
The council has been wrestling with the question of whether to change the borough's form of government since early September. It accepted the resignation effective Oct. 10 of longtime borough Manager Judith Chambers.
