Harveys Lake held its 2013 re-organization meeting prior to the regular council meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 15.


Amy Williams was elected council president while Fran Kopko will continue to serve as vice president. Larry Radel was re-appointed to the planning commission for a 3-year term.

The zoning fee will be increased to $40 per year, while the borough garbage fee remains at $195 per year. The contractor's license fee will be reinstated at $125 for 2013.


During the past two years, there has been no fee but, according to councilperson Boice, We have been looking for ways to generate revenue…so there is less that has to be put on the homeowners.
