#NewtownPA Township Elects Board Leaders; Looks Ahead To 2023

#NewtownPA Township Elects Board Leaders; Looks Ahead To 2023 | Newtown News of Interest |

The board of supervisors on Tuesday welcomed the New Year by re-electing Supervisor Dennis Fisher as chairman, Supervisor John Mack as vice chairman and Supervisor Elen Snyder as assistant secretary and treasurer.

During its annual reorganization meeting, the five member board voted unanimously to continue with the same leadership team that led them through 2022.

According to Fisher, some of the chief challenges ahead in 2023 will be resolving the legal actions surrounding the Wawa development project on Silver Lake Road; maneuvering through the year on a very tight budget; completing and adopting the township’s comprehensive plan; designating
additional ARPA funds; and acting on a proposal to build a new pedestrian bridge over the Newtown Creek.
