CLARKS GREEN — The Abington Council of Governments (ACOG) decided at its Sept. 3 meeting to cancel its emergency first responders appreciation event tentatively scheduled for Oct. 10 at South Abington Park, due to a lack of community response. The ACOG still hopes to present a similar event next year, with more time to plan.

In other business, the council voted to approve expenses for Clarks Green Borough Council Member and ACOG Secretary Marnie Palmer to attend the Pennsylvania Council of Governments (PACOG) conference on Sept. 21. Palmer is also president of the PACOG.

The treasurer’s report showed a balance of $2,264,14. Brief municipal reports were also given.

The next ACOG meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Oct. 8 at the Clarks Green Borough Building.
