DALTON — Council member Bill Salva resigned at the Dalton Borough council meeting, Dec. 11.

He said that he had the pleasure in serving council. Salva said he has other responsibilities to attend to.

“I thank you and appreciate all your dedication and hard work,” said Salva. “I know we faced many obstacles with limited resources, but we remain determined to find new and different solutions to these obstacles.

Salva thanked everyone for their dedication.

“You have been a great service,” said Council president Gus Vlassis.

“I’m going to miss you, Bill,” said board member Lorraine Daniels.

Mayor Aaron Holzman thanked Salva for his service to Dalton Council.

The board voted to accept Salva’s resignation with regret.

In other business, in his health and sanitation report, board member Bill Montgomery announced that he received bids for solid waste collection. He said that J.P. Mascaro & Sons was the lowest bid. He said that by choosing this company, the board can reduce the cost by 10 percent.

“We had Mascaro before,” said Montgomery. “They did a good job.”

The board voted to approve to choose J.P. Mascaro & Sons to solid waste collection in Dalton.

The board voted to accept the resignation of Greg Gondella from the planning commission. Vlassis said that Ron Phelps will take over the position.

Also, Holzman encouraged anyone who is interested in serving the community, to join the Dalton Fire Department.
