Borough council roundup: Drumm promoted, police contract OK’d, WHP development move and more

Barrington Police Sgt. Michael Drumm — who also serves the borough as the school board president — was promoted to lieutenant during Tuesday’s regular monthly borough council meeting.

Drumm will serve as the department’s lieutenant for a six-month probationary term that began Tuesday. He was promoted to the position after it was left vacant when the previous lieutenant, Dave Roberts, was promoted to chief of Barrington police earlier this year.
