Mehoopany Township reorganized Monday night with Bill Henning as chairman and Steve Comstock as vice chairman.
Township supervisors, including Eloise Day, will jointly serve as police commissioners.
Attorney Paul Litwin was appointed as solicitor, replacing James Davis.
Henning will also serve as the township’s roadmaster.
Comstock will continue his role as sewer facility superintendent.
Emily Kraftjack will continue as secretary-treasurer as well as building permit and floodplain officer.
To help enforce floodplain management rules, the township hired Jere Woods of Eaton Township. Woods contracted with the township to be compensated for no more than $18 per hour plus mileage.
The township also reappointed Corey J Comstock as the emergency management coordinator.
Eloise Day will continue as municipal building superintendent.
Meshoppen Borough police department also will continue to patrol Mehoopany Township.
In addition to the appointments, the township also adopted two resolutions. One resolution is to have the certified public accountant firm of Graves Accounting to perform a 2012 audit.
The second resolution was to provide a mechanism in attorney fees regarding collection of fees and late charges for sewer bills.
Henning said that this mechanism will help everyone to be paid fairly.
The township’s regular monthly meeting date is the second Wednesday of the month, and tonight at 7, the supervisors will be meeting again in the township’s municipal building.
