Long had planned for Thompson to take over his role since around 2019.

The board also unanimously accepted Thompson’s resignation from the Recreation Board and, in turn, unanimously agreed to appoint Long to the rec board in his place. They also unanimously agreed to appoint Sam Abrams to the Vacancy Board.

Also Tuesday, supervisors discussed a complaint about street parking near the West Walnut Street and Quittapahilla Drive intersection, and they authorized solicitor Amy Leonard to draft an ordinance banning parking on a stretch from North Mill Street to the curb. The ordinance will be advertised for public hearing at a future meeting.
