West Marlborough Township employees started the year off with some good news: they got a 2.5 percent pay raise. The township supervisors approved the increase at their January 2 meeting.
As required by Pennsylvania law, the supervisors also held their yearly reorganization meeting, but not a lot changed: William Wylie is still the chairman, with Jake Chalfin as vice chairman, Hugh Lofting Sr. as roadmaster and emergency coordinator and Shirley Walton as secretary-treasurer.
Fran Green of Yerkes Associates will continue as the township engineer and Dwight Yoder as the township solicitor.
The township supervisors will meet on the first Tuesday of each month, except for November, when they will meet on Monday, Nov. 5, because the township garage/meeting room doubles as the polling place.
Wayne Grafton and Elizabeth "Baz" Powell agreed to serve additional three-year terms on the township's Zoning Hearing Board.
Roy Jackson, Richard Corkran and Tom Brosius were re-appointed to four-year terms on the township Planning Commission. Tom Brosius was re-elected as chairman, with Tom Roosevelt as vice chairman and Emery Jones Taylor as secretary.
