GILBERTON, Pa. -

A Schuylkill County borough is addressing an uproar over its police chief.

Gilberton Borough has rescheduled a borough council meeting set for Thursday night because police chief Mark Kessler is on vacation.

The meeting will be held next Wednesday.

Kessler has gained notoriety for profanity-laced, gunfire-riddled YouTube videos in which he criticizes the government.

While some Gilberton residents have expressed concern about the videos Mayor Mary Lou Hannon says she supports Kessler's continued employment.
