School resource officer continues in Akron
By: MILAN VRACARICH Review Correspondent, Staff Writer
Akron Borough Council passed and approved the amendment to the current SRO agreement. The School Resource Officer was originally funded by a grant from the federal government in 2006, with Akron and surrounding municipalities agreeing to fund the SRO.
A revision to the agreement proposed two months ago was deemed unsatisfactory by the council. The new revision continues the current agreement until the end of this year with no changes. The borough is anticipating a new proposal once police contracts are received.
An ongoing problem for the borough is the storage capacity of its records. According to Borough Manager Dan Guers, erecting or dedicating additional storage space was discussed several years ago. It has reached a point where action needs to be taken soon. The plan is to either increase the size of the present room or use a corner of the borough’s garage by erecting walls and shelving to create the additional storage space.
Greg Strausser of Strausser Surveying and Engineering petitioned the Council to rezone approximately 2.25 acres on the eastern side of Fulton Street. The property is surrounded by R1 and R3 zones and was requested to change from an R2 to an R3 zone to accommodate multifamily dwellings.
"This is basically the classic type of infill housing that we need to keep embracing, especially in the urban growth areas," said Strausser.
The Lancaster County Planning Commission recommended rezoning approval. Ordinance No. 00059 was approved and passed by the Akron Borough Council, allowing the land to be rezoned.
Barbara McMahon has agreed to chair the shoe drop on New Year’s Eve. The event may be moved to the Broad Street playground and possibly include a bonfire. She’s requesting volunteers to assist with the festivities either on New Year’s Eve or with the planning of the event. More AKRON, page A16
