It has been an exciting three months for my family and me. On November 2, I was elected to be the next Mayor of Dunmore…on December 11th I was married to my favorite meteorologist…and on January 11th I was sworn-in as Mayor of Dunmore by my father, The Honorable Mark J. Conway.
It has been a whirlwind of a few months, but it has been a great start to what I hope is a new chapter for Dunmore.
I’d like to use this monthly platform as an opportunity to keep residents of Dunmore up-to-date on what we are working on in the Mayor’s Office.
Earlier this month on Facebook I announced my plans to create a “Safe Transfer Zone” located at the Dunmore Borough Building.
A safe transfer zone is a place where people who are involved in online transactions (Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, OfferUp, etc.) can meet safely to exchange goods in a secured and monitored location. In addition to online transactions, it is also a place where you can safely handle child custody transfers.
With the increasing number of online sales, it is important to remain vigilant so that you are safe while conducting online business.
We are still working out the logistics, but we hope to have this area up and running in the near future!
If you would like to keep up to date on other announcements and information, please follow me on Facebook at Mayor Max Conway!
