Smith asked about the resolution from March about having only one Road Master.

The solicitor said that the resolution would not be effective as the new board could make a new resolution to change it if they wanted to.  Smith will speak with solicitor about it.

In new business: The township received a resignation letter from Auditor Marlyn Dorsey.  Joe Bails attended the meeting and has expressed interest.  After some questions by Smith, a motion was made by Dietrich to appoint Joe Bails as Auditor. 2nd by Smith.  All approved.

Smith brought up a concern he has about a smear campaign that he has heard about against him.  He has heard that someone is trying to make him look bad so that he loses the next election. Would like it on the record that he thinks it is a disgusting act of politics. Discussion ensued.

Motion by Smith to adopt the updated pension plan. 2nd by Dietrich.

Motion by Sanders to review and pay bills. 2nd by Smith.
