Membership to a newly formed fire company in Palmerton continues to grow.
Borough council, after a 45-minute executive session on Thursday, accepted four more members to join the Palmerton Municipal Fire Company.
Firefighters Joseph Kercsmar, Anthony Harry, and Marlena Beers were appointed by council on a 5-0 measure as members to the fire company. Councilmen Richard Nothstein and Michael Ballard were absent.
On a 3-2 motion that passed only after Mayor Chris Olivia cast the deciding vote, council also approved firefighter Gerard Alfano as a member of the fire company.
