Douglass Supervisors Board Back to Full Strength

With the return of John Stasik, second from right, to the Douglass (Mont.) Board of Supervisors, replacing Fred Ziegler, the board of supervisors, Chairman Anthony Kuklinski, center, and Alan Keiser, is back up to full strength. They are flanked by Township Solicitor Robert Brant, left, and Township Manager Peter Hiryak.

There was no public swearing in ceremony for John Stasik.

A former township supervisor who wanted to waste no time in diving back into the business of the township, he got himself sworn in after being selected from among four applicants last month to replace Fred Ziegler.

Ziegler, as we all know, resigned as part of a plea agreement in his trial on theft and embezzlement charges.

pinned the new badge of rank on his uniform.
So when the meeting began last night, there was a brief-but-hearty "Welcome Back John" and the board got right to work.

And the first thing they did was promote officer Brian Steffie to the rank of police

This of course explained the crowd.

One the happy event was over, the vast majority adjourned to the lobby of the township building and loudly congratulated the township's new police sergeant.

The board also unanimously granted preliminary plan approval and several waivers for the long-discussed Zern tract, a development with 240 townhomes off Jackson Road.

Engineer Josh Hagadorn also reported that the bids for the new township highway maintenance building are in and he believes the method chosen to bid the project will "save the township a lot of money."

And the board also thanked Janet Bauer for her service on the Emergency Services Board.

And now, without any further ado, are the very Tweets and videos from the meeting.
