HIGHLANDS – Deadline for filing applications to run for one of three seats on the Borough Council is Monday, Aug. 31 at 4 p.m.., Borough Clerk Matthew Conlon announced in a letter to borough residents.

Councilmembers Rosemary Ryan and Kenneth Braswell are both currently serving full terms on the non-partisan form of government governing the borough, and Councilman Cody Valkos is currently holding the seat to which he was appointed in January. That term expires this year as well as an elected one year term will be on the ballot in November.
