Birmingham in brief

Birmingham Township Supervisors’ Chairman Scott Boorse swears in William Reppert as a new township police officer.

Birmingham Township Supervisors, in a 2-0 vote, approved a two-lot subdivision for a 4.3-acre property owned by Supervisors’ Chairman Scott Boorse and his wife Jennifer during the supervisors’ Sept. 9 meeting. The property will be split into two lots. No construction is planned on the site until the lots are sold, said Jennifer Boorse. Scott Boorse recused himself from the vote.

The township now has a new police officer. William Reppert took the oath of office. Supervisors also agreed to a pay raise for Officer William Behrndt. His rate goes from $20 per hour to $23.63 per hour.

Birmingham Township supervisors agreed to send a letter of support for Chadds Ford Township’s application for a Delaware County Green Ways Grant. As reported last week, Chadds Ford is looking to preserve the former Goodman Farm, a 78.98-acre property at 6 Oakland Road. The property was previously approved for a planned residential development.
