Mayor Robert Klaus and police Chief Joseph Eisenhardt presented Uron with a plaque for his actions on March 23 in Rhode Island when he performed the Heimlich Maneuver on a choking restaurant patron.

The council members then unanimously approved an agreement to enter a shared services agreement with Runnemede regarding the services of a deputy registrar, save an abstention from Councilman Shawn Ludwig.

The body also unanimously voted to pass a resolution stating “the Barrington borough council supports marriage equality for same-sex couples.” The resolution was finalized when Council President Kirk Popiolek signed it after Klaus chose not to.

In other matters, the council also:

  • Awarded contracts for street improvements
  • Changed the date of the August council meeting to Aug. 14
  • Deleted 2012 and 2013 tax exemptions
  • Accepted ownership of pedestrian safety flashing beacons at Highland Avenue and Mercer Drive
  • Certified a property maintenance lien
  • Approved the July bill list for $1.1 million
