North Lebanon Township manager Cheri Grumbine retires at the end of this month after 37 years as a municipal employee.

Grumbine will officially step down on July 1.

Assistant township manager Lori Brooks will take on the positions of township manager, township secretary, and assistant township treasurer.

Brooks will be replaced by new assistant township manager Molly Lum, who has worked for the township for six years.

Township supervisors made it official on June 19, when they accepted her retirement.

The majority of the June 19 meeting was public comment concerning the possible Jubilee development at 420 E. Kercher Ave. However, this was not an agenda item.
