With the recent removal of former zoning board chairman Stephen Williams, Wilson Borough’s need for help on the influential body has been well-known.
If Monday night’s regular borough council meeting was any indication, Wilson should have no problem filling the vacancy. Williams was removed after being charged with stealing from the borough Lions Club, where he'd served as treasurer.
Two separate detailed application letters from local women –Janis Galitzeck, an environmental health and safety manager at Alcom Printing, and Janice Viglianti, a longtime real estate appraiser -- were read by borough manager Karen Lohrman to council members.
Both women in their letters professed a love of Wilson Borough and a desire to serve the community. (Viglianti attended the meeting – the sole member of the public there, apart from the press.)
Council President Lenny Feinberg asked that the position be advertised due to the relatively high interest in the job. Council agreed.
Council hopes to fill the position, which will be one of two non-voting alternate slots, toward the end of the year.
Councilman David Jones was absent.
