Special luncheon

A luncheon was held on Thursday in honor of Borough Parking Enforcement Officer Robert Emigh who is being deployed to Iraq. A Tyrone native, Emigh took over the duties of now retired PEO Ron States. He is a 2006 graduate of Tyrone Area High School and began enforcing the parking meters for the downtown area on December 26, 2007. Emigh will report to his unit in Johnstown on May 19 where he will spend eight days before heading to Twentynine Palms, California for pre-deployment training. Emigh will then head to Iraq for a seven month deployment. Taking over the position of Parking Enforcement Officer will be another Tyrone native, Byron Kost.
