Administrator Reynold Reinert dies the previous Friday

There was an empty chair at the table Aug. 20 when Weisenberg Township superviors met.

Longtime Administrator Reynold Reinert died the previous Friday, leaving a void at the table and in their hearts.

The agenda was light. After approving the previous meeting's minutes and treasurer's reports, other reports were presented to the board.

There was no subdivision activity, new or old business or public comment.

Supervisors tabled the well ordinance until next month and the roadmaster said there was nothing to report.
