Vacancy officer needed to find new supervisor

Chadds Ford Township is still looking for a replacement for former Supervisor Keith Klaver.

Supervisors Frank Murphy and George Thorpe were unable to come up with a replacement by the Feb. 6 deadline, so the matter is now in the hands of the Vacancy Committee comprised of the two supervisors and Gail Force, the township vacancy officer.

According to Township Manager Amanda Serock, the committee will hold a public meeting 7 p.m., Monday, Feb. 16 to consider and possibly vote on a replacement.

According to state law, the committee has until Feb. 21 to find a third supervisor. If that fails, the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas would appoint someone.

Klaver was scheduled to begin his fourth year in what, he previously said, would have been his one and only six-year term in office, but he resigned due to health reasons effective Jan. 6.
