Dear Lansdowne neighbors,
As we end the year, I want to take a moment, on behalf of Lansdowne Borough Council, to thank the many people in the Lansdowne community for the hard work throughout the year. I am grateful to be in a community where the many people in our community volunteer, work, and support their neighbors—the Lansdowne Fire Company, the EMS squad, the police officers, the many community volunteers who serve on the Boards and Commissions to make decisions within the community, the many volunteers in nonprofits and community organizations who volunteer to serve their neighbors, and also any neighbors who spontaneously took a moment to do a small act of kindness for a neighbor or a stranger. All of you build our community and make us stronger together.
Also, we want to thank the employees of the Borough—the Library staff, the sanitation and Public Works workers, the crossing guards, the clerks in the Police Department, the Parks and Recreation Director, the Code Enforcement Officers, the Borough Staff, our Borough Manager and Chief of Police. Through your daily work, our community works like a well-oiled machine.
Thank you all for your service throughout this past year. Because of your efforts, the community remained strong during a year of uncertainty and came back to life stronger than ever after a year of quarantine in COVID.
At the last council of the year, Lansdowne Borough Council recognized the Councilmember Michael Schleigh, Councilmember Janet English, Councilmember Wardell Holt, and Vice President Magda Byrne for their years on Council. Lansdowne Borough Council also recognized Nhaomi Lartey who served this past year as a Junior Councilmember and did an outstanding job.
Lansdowne Borough Council made a special note to honor the 20 years of service to the Borough for Barbara Henry, long-time Lansdowne Borough Secretary.
Finally, Lansdowne Borough honored Mayor Campuzano who has served the Borough as a community volunteer, Councilmember, Council President, elected Constable and for the last eight years the Mayor of Lansdowne. Thank you, Mayor Tony for your years of contributions and service to the Borough. Learn more here.
Lansdowne Borough Council voted unanimously to adopt the 2022 budget that invests even more in our community—our parks, our streets, our arts, our culture, and our human resources: with raises for all of our Borough Personnel.
Lansdowne Borough Council also voted to lower real estate taxes by 5%. Lansdowne Borough Council is dedicated to bringing quality services to Lansdowne and also maximizing the investment into the Lansdowne community.
Please read through the list of accomplishments from the last year on Council. In the coming New Year, Lansdowne Borough Council is dedicated to continuing our investments in green spaces, arts places, and a community that values our neighbors.
My wish for all of you is that you are able to enjoy time with your families this season and you have blessings in the new year.
