Lowhill supervisors prepare township for the new year

Thursday, January 11, 2018 by DANIEL HAMM Special to The Press in Local News

This meeting only occurs once a year, mandated by the state to be held on the first day after the new year, but changes made at the reorganization meeting could affect the direction of the township.

Lowhill supervisors did not make many changes this year and, according to township Secretary Jill Seymour, supervisors named Richard Hughes as chairman and George “Buddy” Wessner Jr. as vice chairman.

Supervisor Robb Werley was appointed treasurer.

Steckel and Stopp law firm, Slatington, with Attorney Charles Waters, was named township solicitor.

One of the changes at the meeting was recording secretary.

Janet Henritzy was appointed to that position for 2018.

Supervisor meetings will be held 7:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month. April and July meetings will take place 7:30 p.m. on the second Thursday.

Supervisors approved a $1,500 donation to the Northwestern Recreation Commission.
