New council

Members of the Gettysburg Borough Council gather prior to Monday’s regular meeting in the borough hall, including, from left: front row, Patricia Lawson, Wesley Heyser, and Judith Butterfield; back row, Chris Berger, Mayor Ted Streeter, Jake Schindel, John Lawver, and newly elected member Matt Moon.

The fate of this year’s Memorial Day parade remained unsettled after Monday’s Gettysburg Borough Council meeting.

If the council does not agree to a fixed fee of $1,500, the parade will not occur, said Al Ferranto, who represented the Gettysburg Joint Veterans Memorial Day Commission.
