Requesting qualifications for professionals who serve the borough is a process council goes through every so often, says Borough Manager Chris Boehm.

"It has been a very long time since the borough advertised for Engineering RFPs.  This Borough Council feels it is time they explore their options for engineering services," Boehm said
