The meeting was called to order at 1:00 pm. Board members Peterson and Bilek were in attendance, along with the Clerk, Deputy Clerk, Bill Wortham, and one resident.
Chairman Peterson started by explaining that the purpose of the meeting is to accept the resignation of Curtis Johnson and appoint Bill Wortham to fill the vacant seat until a new Board member is installed after the election in March.
Peterson read aloud the resignation letter from Johnson. Motion by Peterson, second by Bilek to accept Johnson’s resignation. Carried unanimously.
Peterson reported that he and Wortham had spoken and that Wortham had agreed to fill the vacant seat. Peterson noted he thought it was a benefit to the Township to have a full Board available for the couple Board meetings and for the Annual Meeting coming up. As Wortham had served on the Board previously for 15 years he would be able to step in easily.
Motion by Peterson, second by Bilek to appoint Wortham to the vacant seat. Peterson, Bilek, and Clerk Plein voted affirmative. Carried unanimously.
There being no further business to conduct, the meeting adjourned at 1:05 pm.
John Plein, Clerk-Treasurer
