In the past, several authorities were created to finance and supervise construction projects or to finance research and development enterprises. As these projects are completed, on-going actions are required to be taken during the life of the bond issues to conform to indenture requirements.
To reduce the number of inactive authorities, Council combined the Industrial & Commercial Development Authority, Municipal Building Authority, Parking Authority, Sewer Authority, Storm Water Authority, and Public Safety Building Authority into one "Authorities Board."
Unless a major project is undertaken, the Authorities Board will continue to meet infrequently. For information, call (814) 234-7101.
The Authorities Board has five members, all residents of the Borough.
