Personnel and Civil Service

The Borough currently employs approximately 75 people across the various departments.


Police officer positions are filled following the Civil Service Commission Rules and Regulations for recruitment for entry-level positions and promotions. Recruitment for all other positions is processed through the Borough Manager’s office. Appointments are made by Borough Council based on the recommendations of the Borough Manager.


Council works with the Manager and the Borough Solicitor to address all personnel issues, including hiring, firing, disciplinary issues, and grievances. These discussions are held in Executive Session and are not open to the public unless they require public action or relate to policy issues rather than specific employee matters.
