NANTICOKE — Mayor Joseph Dougherty has approved the hiring of Joseph Buchalski, of Shickshinny, as a full-time city police officer.

In addition, Mark Ickler, of Sterling, Justin St. Clair, of Berwick, and Michael Derwin, of Nanticoke, were hired as reserve police officers.

Dougherty also authorized the promotions of two officers: Michael Roke from sergeant to lieutenant, and Joseph Guydosh from sergeant to detective sergeant. The swearing-in ceremonies took place at Wednesday’s council meeting.

Council Vice President James Litchkofski thanked the mayor for hiring the officers, and said their presence will help to keep the city safe.

In other matters:

Councilman Stephen Duda announced his resignation from the Municipal Authority effective immediately. Duda expressed his gratitude regarding former Municipal Authority Chairman Hank Marks’ recommendation (of Duda) to the authority. Duda will continue to serve as Nanticoke’s council president.
