Dombroski, 25, announced as Washingtonville mayor

WASHINGTONVILLE — The borough of Washingtonville has a new mayor.

Tyler Dombroski, 25, was appointed during a special meeting Tuesday night of the Washingtonville Borough Council to fill the vacancy left by the death of Mayor Esther Cotner. Cotner, 95, died April 21.

Dombroski served on the borough council and was in his second term which would have covered four years. His first term was a two-year term.

He resigned from the council in order to serve as mayor.

The vacancy board in the borough considered some names following the death of the mayor whose four-year term expires in December 2015, according to Council President Frank Dombroski. Frank is Tyler Dombroski’s father.

Notary Eleanor Gardner administered the oath of office to the new mayor who assumed duties immediately.

The only council member absent from the meeting was vice president Mike Hickey. Other council members attending were Hickey’s father, Bob Hickey, Dave Albertson and Frank Dombroski.

“We felt as a board he was the most qualified for the position of mayor because of his knowledge of ordinances and the borough code book,” Frank Dombroski said.

Tyler Dombroski will receive his master’s degree in community and economic development Aug. 16 from Penn State University. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Penn State.

He works as a project coordinator in community and economic development for SEDA-COG in Lewisburg.
