'During the March 14 Lynn Township supervisors meeting, the board learned the planning commission wanted a secretary.

Supervisor Justin Smith, who said he would attend the planning meeting the following week, said the secretary's job should be done by one of the commission members.

Supervisor Brian Dietrich said he was disappointed they had not reappointed Kathy Hermany, who served in that position while a member.

He said serving as the secretary is quite a commitment. The township staff serves as secretary for the zoning board.
