01 - 28 - 2014 Lewistown Mayor breaks tie vote in council appointment vote
[LS] - Last night, Lewistown Mayor Deb Bargo broke a tie as the Borough Council was electing to fill the vacated position of former Council Member Lee Bollinger. The tie-breaking vote came as the council was voting on candidates Justin Treggo, Brian Schell, & Bill Parson--all of whom were placed in nomination by council members. Bargo broke the tie between Trego and Schell by voting for Schell & the appointment was then adopted with the only no vote being cast by Council member Larry Searer. Bollinger resigned from his position on the borough council during the Dec. 30 council meeting.
