It took a mere 17 minutes for Warwick Township to reorganize for 2013, and the theme was, "If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it."

In one of the shortest meetings in recent township memory, everyone was reelected or reappointed to the same positions held in 2012. Logan Myers will remain chairman of the supervisors and Mike Vigunas will continue as vice-chair.

Fellow supervisor Herb Flosdorf asked Myers if he had any campaign promises.

"That we will keep the meetings as short as possible," he said with a grin.

The board then agreed to keep all liaison responsibilities the same as last year, and reappoint the following:

Dan Zimmerman as township secretary, treasurer and manager; Marlene Trump as assistant secretary/treasurer; Tom Zorbaugh as zoning officer and building code official; Dean Saylor as public works supervisor; and Bob Lamb as Emergency Management Coordinator.

Morgan, Hallgren, Crosswell & Kane, represented by William Crosswell, will remain the township solicitor.

Zimmerman, Pfannebecker, Nuffort & Albert will remain the zoning hearing board’s solicitor.

ELA Group, represented by Grant Hummer, will continue as the township engineer. Darrell Becker of Arro Engineering will be the alternate engineer.

John Theilacker of Brandywine Conservancy is the township consultant.

Appointed to four year terms on the planning commission are Nathan Flood and John Gazsi.

Appointed to five year terms on the zoning hearing board are Gary Lefever, Thomas Matteson and Brent Schrock.

The only change from last year is the addition of a new member on the Municipal Authority, Joyce Gerhart.

In other township business (all done in less than 20 minutes):

? The township has decided to do business with Susquehanna Bank, instead of PNC, due to lower fees and better rate options.

? The township was able to move some money from its end-of-year balance in the general fund to the capital reserve.

"We use this fund to complete capital purchases of projects," explained township manager Dan Zimmerman. "Our end-of-year balance came in better than projected due to our earned income funds being better than projected. This could be an indication that the economy is getting better."

The total amount transferred was $200,000.

? The next meeting of the Warwick Township Board of Supervisors, which Chairman Myers promises will be short, is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 16 at 7 p.m. More WARWICK TOWNSHIP, page A12
