CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Three Borough of Chambersburg retirees with more than 100 years of combined service were recognized this week by the Chambersburg Borough Council.

Borough Manager Eric W. Oyer, Borough Secretary Tanya Mickey and Solicitor Thomas Finucane are leaving their posts in coming weeks.

"We're turning a page in our history," said William McLaughlin, council president.

Oyer, who started work in the borough in 1976, received commendations from the Pennsylvania Senate, Pennsylvania House of Representatives and U.S. House of Representatives. Mayor Pete Lagiovane presented Oyer with a photograph from his youth football team.

McLaughlin called Mickey "the gate-keeper, the record-keeper" and described her as a wonderful and kind person.

"I think she was like 10 when she started," he joked of her years of service.

Finucane has served as the council's solicitor since 1970.

"The borough is well prepared to move forward. We have an excellent council and staff," Oyer said.


The council also recognized Councilwoman Mary Beth Shank, whose last meeting was Monday. She did not seek re-election.
