Pocopson leadership stays the same

There will be no leadership changes for Pocopson Township’s Board of Supervisors.

At its reorganization meeting Tuesday, Ricki Stumpo was named chairwoman and Elaine DiMonte was named vice-chairwoman. Alice J. Balsama is the third supervisor.

Other township appointments and committee members were approved on Tuesday, as were meeting dates for 2017.

The supervisors, who normally meet the second and fourth Mondays at 7:30 p.m., will have one meeting in May, August and December, and will change the October meeting dates to the third and fifth Mondays.

Also at the reorganizational meeting, the supervisors approved resolutions naming Longwood Fire Co. EMS as the township ambulance provider, and Longwood and Po-Mar-Lin fire companies as the township’s fire companies.

Other business

Supervisors voted to advertise and reissue a request for proposals to study the historic Barnard House.

The original RFP asked for submissions by Dec. 23. By reposting it, the supervisors hope to draw proposals to study what the house can be used for.

The RFP will be posted on PennBid, which is Pennsylvania’s Electronic Document and Bid Management Program.
