Of Brien said All the trustees he feels a have the Best interests of the township at heart first and he said trustees have a a lot of priorities to contend with. Taylor volunteered to chair the boards Hospital welfare and sanitation committee. Since the third fire House is nearing completion Papner said he would be a Happy to continue to chair the buildings and maintenance committee.
