Emmaus Borough Councilman Nathan Brown’s ears should have been burning on Monday night.
Although Brown wasn’t in attendance at the July 16 borough council meeting, his name was brought up repeatedly by those wishing to sing his praises. Brown was a speaker at a special July 15 flagpole dedication in front of Emmaus VFW Post 7088 honoring Ben Koltisko. Brown was also very involved in the events leading up to Sunday’s ceremony.
Fellow Councilmen Wesley Barrett and Michael Waddell and Emmaus Mayor Winfield Iobst all took the opportunity to compliment Brown during the meeting.
During the Mayor's Report, Iobst said: "I just want to acknowledge Nate. He does a great job. He is great. I am real pleased with him."
During the Community Minute, Barrett said: “Even though Mr Brown isn’t here, I would like to thank him for a wonderful presentation yesterday at the flagpole dedication.”
Waddell added: “I just want to echo that. I want to thank Mr. Brown and Mr. (Jeff) Clapper (Emmaus Public Works Director). It’s been a while and I really think that it is something that the people in this community will enjoy.”
