Following a 23-year career as roadmaster of North Lebanon Township, Ed Brensinger’s retirement letter was accepted Monday.
Brensinger also serves as chairman of the North Lebanon Township Board of Supervisors. He abstained from the vote accepting the letter.
His last working day is scheduled for Dec. 1, with vacation and personal days taking him further into the month. He noted that he has been planning for retirement for a while, and trusts the department to function without him.
“I’ve served 23 years as roadmaster and have been afforded very good equipment, very good employees, and worked with great residents of the township to keep the township up to the standards that our residents expect,” he said. “I believe one of my last assignments that I put on myself was to put people in place that would be able to carry that forward and train them.
“I do appreciate all the opportunities I was given by the current board and previous Boards to serve our residents and make things better for our residents.”
Supervisor Ardy Snook, who worked under Brensinger for 16 years, thanked Brensinger for his work over the years.
“I think he did an excellent job maintaining our roads; I think a lot of our roads are in better shape than a lot of the county,” said Snook.
Several residents at Monday’s meeting also thanked Brensinger for his work.
“I’ve lived in the township for over 30 years, and I’ve seen the improvements that have happened to our roads and the service that we’ve gotten,” said resident Sarah Fuller. “That’s all due to the township staff and the leadership, so Mr. Brensinger, I will thank you for that leadership.”
Brensinger recently came under fire for using his township vehicle to run personal errands, and being involved in a minor accident outside of the township. The incident was investigated by township manager Lori Books, who said that she spoke with Brensinger about the incident and the personnel manual was followed.
At last month’s meeting, resident Jim Cikovic voiced concerns that the incident was investigated by Books, who works under Brensinger in his position as chairman of the supervisors. Brensinger did not comment at that time.
North Lebanon supervisors meet at the township municipal building the third Monday of each month at 7 p.m. The meetings are open to the public and do not require prior registration.
