If you were late arriving to Monday’s Board of Supervisors meeting than you were out of luck. Literally from the time the pledge of allegiance was finished, the supervisors meeting was over within 10 minutes. Bob Lamina read the announcements which included the Public Meeting on Wednesday, December 8 in regards to the Amtrak 252 bridge project, including an update on the Feasibility Study. Meeting to be held 7-9 PM at Delaware Valley Friends School. The other announcement was to remind residents that there is an expected vacancy on the Board of Supervisors due to Warren Kampf’s recent election to the state legislature. Those interested in filling the anticipated vacancy are asked to send a resume to Mimi Gleason by 12/31.
There was no new business from supervisors and no residents comments. It may have been the shortest meeting in township history.
News from the T/E School Board. The election of the school board president and vice president was on last night’s agenda. I am pleased to announce that Karen Cruikshank was elected president and Betsy Fadem, the out-going president, was elected vice-president. These positions are two-year terms. With the school district deficit, teacher contract negotiations and looming PSERS issues in Harrisburg, the challenges are there for our School Board. Best wishes and good luck to Karen and the other school board members as they struggle with our challenging economic times. Residents are fortunate to have such qualified school board members to guide the school district.
