As water trickled down Bath streets on a balmy 46-degree February evening, Bath Borough Council President Mark Saginario applauded borough crews’ snow plowing and removal efforts during the Jan. 23 Winter Storm Jonas.
“The snow removal policy represented a change, a judicious risk that paid off. I want to thank the council for their work amending the policy. We stayed ahead of the storm. Everyone worked together,” he said.
When Bath Councilman Barry Fenstermaker arrived at the Bath Borough Council special meeting Jan. 13, he was serenaded by his fellow council members and Mayor Fiorella Mirabito in an unrehearsed, impromptu rendition of the happy birthday song. Seeming mildly embarrassed, Fenstermaker listened to the rendition.
Newly appointed Bath Fire Chief Emilio Desini gave his January report at Bath Borough Council’s reorganization meeting Jan. 4.
Desini was introduced by Mayor Fiorella Reginelli-Mirabito as having “more energy in his pinky finger than most people have in the room.” The chief lived up to this description. After the meeting, Reginelli-Mirabito expressed how delighted she is with council’s appointment of Desini, saying, “He is going to improve our fire services, do good things.”
Circumstance and a little levity were present at the beginning of the Bath Borough Council reorganization meeting Jan. 4.
Mayor Fiorella Reginelli-Mirabito called the meeting to order with a full room present. By Pennsylvania Borough Code, the mayor every two years holds the gavel on the first Monday before the first Tuesday meeting. The mayor can expound for as long as — and about whatever topic — she chooses.
