Mayor Dave Haslett will step down from his position on April 8th to take over as the borough's Superintendent of the Public Works Department. Council President, Josh Klicker will assume the Mayor's duties as the Acting Mayor. A new Mayor will be appointed in May. Also, in the Tuesday council meeting, Loraine Makatura, the current Borough Secretary/Treasurer was appointed Manager and Brian O'Malley, former assistant to State Representative Adam Ravenstahl was appointed Assistant Manger.
Mayor Haslett had filed for re-election at the beginning of March. He will, most likely, withdraw his name and another candidate will be chosen by the party. Other interested citizens of Avalon may start a write-in campaign.
