Here’s what happened:

We also had a brief Special Meeting on Monday, January 25, 2016 to appoint one of the candidates as our new Commissioner. During that meeting, we voted (4-0) to appoint Dan Darragh to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Tony Lisanti. Welcome to the board, Dan.
Our next Workshop meeting will be tonight at 7:00 PM at the Township Building. If any of these issues are important to you, please feel free to join us and voice your opinion. If you cannot attend the meeting in person, please feel free to share your thoughts with me by email and I will be sure to convey your feelings to the other commissioners.
As always, thanks for making Aleppo a great place to live.
Aleppo Township Commissioner
