Denver Broncos Win Super Bowl 50

SANTA CLARA, CA – The Denver Broncos held the Carolina Panthers by at least a touchdown most of the way throughout the game and held on to win by the score of 24-10.

Much of the game was a defensive standoff; however, errors on turnovers was ultimately the deciding factor.

The Broncos’ Vaughn Miller (#58) had an outstanding game with two takeaways. Miller helped contribute to the multiple incomplete passes and numerous penalties committed by the Panthers.

Miller was a unaminous selection as Super Bowl 50 MVP.

It was the third Super Bowl title for the Broncos in its storied history.

What this means for the members of council is that all four council seats and the Mayor’s positions will be up for election at the same time in 2017.

The City of Corry also has a new City Treasurer on board, after former City Treasurer Tom Winchell moved outside the city limits last year. Donna Huffman assumed those duties on Monday. Winchell will stay on board during the transition and to get Huffman acclimated to the daily duties.

Meanwhile, Lisa Jordan was hired as a City Office Assistant. Jordan will take over duties for the retiring Anne Myers, who is retiring after 20 years at City Hall. Myers last day will be on April 1st.

The City of Corry will now direct its attention in hiring a City Manager. Advertisements for that position will start this week. Former City Manager Joe Mangini did not have his contract renewed by Council in December. Then, Mangini was removed prior to his last contracted day of employment with the City. Mayor Campbell stated that Council hesitated on the start of a new search until things were in order and could start to focus in what council wanted in their next City Manager. Council is hopeful to have a new City Manager by April.

After the regularly scheduled council meeting; an informal work session was held in which council members discussed various ideas that they would like to get accomplished in the next year or less. Council meets again on Monday, February 15th at 7:00pm.
