Welcome New Borough Officials

The borough welcomes Michele Ehrhart and Jason Weinrich to Borough Council.  Both are serving on council for the first time and were sworn in at the January Council Meeting. The borough greatly appreciates their willingness to volunteer their time to the improvement of the borough.

Junior Council Person Program

PSAB JCP LogoLast year borough council passed a resolution to create a Junior Council Person (JCP) program, as a way to way to improve our community for the youth, engage young adults in local government, and instill a sense of community pride. We are still looking for our first JCP! Young people are an essential part of our community, that we do not hear from often enough. An important goal of the junior council person program is to reduce this gap. Through this program, the JCP will be able to explain to his/her peers the importance of local government and how the decisions are made within the borough. Additionally, the JCP will help the borough council better understand what can be done to improve the community for its adolescent and young adult citizens.

The Junior Council Person has the right to attend all borough council meetings, including committee meetings and working session, and to participate fully in these meetings including voicing his/her concerns on matters discussed. The JCP will not be able to vote or to attend executive council sessions.

Qualifications:
• Resident of Bernville Borough
• Current Freshman or Sophomore (will be a Sophomore or Junior in August).
• Available to attend meetings the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.
• Willing to serve a one-year term (starting in August)

To apply, interested students should submit an application online at bernvilleborough.org by selecting the Junior Council Person Program option under the Borough Officials and Support Services Tab. If you have any questions please email either the Mayor at shawn@bernvilleborough.org or Councilman Raup-Konsavage at communityday@cottoncandyhouse.com
