Board of auditors names officers
Lower Towamensing Township's Board of Auditors has reshuffled its leadership duties.
Auditor William Walters was appointed chairman, while auditor Tim Duncan was appointed secretary at the board's reorganizational meeting on Monday.
Walters, who had served as board secretary, was appointed to take over the chairmanship, which had previously been held by auditor Carl Silverstein.
As part of their action, the auditors set the wages and benefits at $14.82 per hour, with no benefits, for any elected supervisors when any or all three should be called out to work on the township roads on a strict, call-out basis to be determined by the road foreman.
At its reorganizational meeting last week, the township's board of supervisors recommended to the board of auditors the supervisors pay and benefits for those supervisors hired as township employees.
Also at that meeting, supervisors approved a motion to employ elected supervisors as casual employees to perform work on the roads when necessary and/or needed on a call-out basis at the discretion of the township road foreman.
In an unrelated matter, auditors approved an expense allowance for Supervisor Jesse Mendez of $50 per day and all expenses to attend a state convention in Hershey.
But, instead of paying the full salary, Mendez will be granted $75 per day for a maximum of four days.
