The Franklin Township Board of Supervisors met on Jan. 6 for an organizational meeting, beginning with a vote for John Auerbach to be unanimously elected chairman.

Auerbach asked for nominations for vice-chairman, and new board member David Snyder was elected unanimously. 

Several appointments were unanimously approved for the coming year: Joan McVaugh as township treasurer/manager, Sharon Norris as township secretary, Lamb McErlane as township solicitor, LTL Consultants as township general engineer, URS Corporation as township sanitary engineer, Advanced Geo Services as township general engineer as needed, Tetrahedron Consultants Inc. as township hydro geologist, McCormick Taylor as township traffic engineer, Brandywine Conservancy as township planner, LTL Consultants as township building inspector/zoning officer and code enforcement officer.

On a motion by Auerbach, seconded by Snyder, Barbacane Thornton and Company was appointed township auditor. 

David Hoffman and Richard Squadron were reappointed to four-year terms on the Planning Commission.  Supervisor Eric Brindle seconded Auerbach’s motion to appoint Harold Walls to a one-year term as emergency management coordinator through Dec. 31, 2014. 

William Finch was reappointed as a member to the zoning hearing board, and Nancy Chromey was reappointed as an alternate to the same board. Their terms will expire on Dec. 31, 2016. 

Auerbach moved that Resolution 2014-03, setting the Fire Hydrant Tax of $27 per parcel, be approved. The motion was seconded by Brindle and the resolution was unanimously approved. 

A schedule was approved that sets the Board of Supervisors meetings for the third Wednesday of each month beginning at 7 p.m., and if deemed necessary, on the second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. 

Planning Commission meetings are scheduled on the first Thursday of each month beginning at 7 p.m., except for the July meeting, which  will be held on July 10. Historical Commission meetings are scheduled on the first Wednesday of every month, as needed, beginning at 7 p.m. The HARB meetings are scheduled for the first Wednesday of every month, as needed, immediately following the Historical Commission meetings.
