Palmerton Borough Council can once again run on all cylinders.
In a move that brings it back to full capacity, council on a 6-0 vote Thursday agreed to appoint Jeremy Barbosa to fill a vacant seat.
Barbosa takes over for former Councilwoman Sherri Malik, who resigned last month because she plans to relocate. Barbosa will fill the remainder of Malik's term, which expires Dec. 31, 2011.
A member of the borough planning commission for about four years, Barbosa, 33, of 560 Lafayette Avenue, thanked council for its decision to select him.
