Congratulations to James Merkins who has been picked to fill the remaining time on the Magisterial District Court Seat that was vacated by Anthony Scanlon when he was appointed to Delaware County (Pa) Common Pleas Court in June.
Merkins will run for a full-term for District Court 32-2-54 in 2015. The court serves the 1st, 5th and 6th wards of Springfield along with the 1st and 3rd precincts of the 2nd Ward.
In other matters, the initial forecast is that Springfield is not getting a municipal tax hike this year, and County Council Chairman Tom McGarrigle is developing an Ebola response policy for the county, which after all is home to one of the world’s major international airports.
