Upper Pottsgrove Police Chief Francis Wheatley, right, said the township's police force, shown here in full minus officer, is peopled with the finest people he has ever served with.
As the township commissioners held their last meeting of 2016, they took the opportunity to present commendations to members of its police force.
As outlined by chief Francis Wheatley, officers were recognized for outstanding work both individually and as part of a team.
Commissioner Herb Miller said the practice of giving out awards to police to recognize the job they do is "long overdue."
The board also adopted a $3.1 million that does not raise property taxes and eliminates the per capita tax.
And finally, there was a long and inconclusive review of the second draft of a proposed noise ordinance.
It got sent back to the solicitor's office for a third draft.
