New Cumberland Council gave the go-ahead for plans to honor the late Councilman Brian Webster at Monday’s meeting. Approval was given for a plaque to be placed on the old city building at the corner of River Avenue and Jefferson Street designating the street “Webby Way.” Webster was affectionately known as “Webby” by his many friends in the community and devoted countless hours of service to projects such as the New Cumberland Riverfest which is held each year on that street.
Mayor Will White told Council a family was planning use a camper on South Chester Street as a residence. Police Chief Lester “Chickie” Skinner said he had contacted the individual and had missed a return phone call from the individual and would contact the individual to let him know an ordinance is in place in the New Cumberland forbidding the use of a camper as a residence.
