Robert G. Milot recently decided to step down from his role as a Township Supervisor after serving for over 18 years. The board accepted his resignation during the April 10th meeting and appointed Anthony C. Werley to replace him. Chairman Milot joined the Board of Supervisors on January 1, 1998. He quickly rose to a position of leadership and led the Township through a period of growth in residential and commercial development which has established a sound fiscal basis for the Township to provide services for the improvement of the quality of life for its residents.

While he realized that such growth was necessary for the financial stability of the Township, he was firmly committed to maintaining the agricultural and open space nature of the Township. He actively encouraged and participated in the Multi-municipal Comprehensive Plan for the Northern Region of Lehigh County adopted in November, 2004 which permitted the Township to maintain a larger agricultural and open space program. He encouraged the Township purchase of Conservation Easements, Agricultural Easements and the adoption of Agricultural Security Areas. As a result of these efforts, approximately 50% of the Township land remains as open space and for agricultural uses. During his tenure, the Lyon Valley Park was opened and land was developed for athletic uses. He was also dedicated to improving public safety for Township Residents by playing an important role in the development of the Weisenberg Volunteer Fire Department and the housing of a full time EMS unit within the Township.

The Township will miss his sage advice and the remaining members of the Board, Linda Gorgas and Thomas Wehr, the Township officials and employees and all his friends will miss him and wish him well in his retirement.

Have you seen the image below stenciled by an inlet? It is a reminder to our residents to be mindful of our waterways and not to dump any pollution down these drains. Unlike some cities or urbanized communities, none of the inlets or storm water structures in Weisenberg lead to a sanitary sewer system for treatment. All inlets and structures lead directly to various waterways or basins so it is extremely important to keep them free of pollutants. There are many different types of pollution including oils, gasoline, chemicals and trash. Pollutants also include natural things such as soil and gravel due to erosion. Grass clippings from a yard that gets fertilized or chemical treatments are also considered pollutants. Remember these storm drains flow directly into rivers, lakes and streams affecting not only fish and wildlife but even your own drinking water.

If you drove by the corner of 863 and Lyon Valley Road you might have noticed the laying out and leveling for a new baseball field being constructed at the Weisenberg Township Park. It was quickly hydro seeded so that grass can start growing and can possibly be ready for play in the spring. The backstop fencing has been ordered and will soon be installed. Things will take shape quickly so keep your eyes to the field and look forward to seeing kids outside playing next year.

Baseball is enjoyed by all ages. Starting off with T-Ball at a very young age of 4 or 5 and progressing into little league, high school and college. For over a century baseball has been called America's pastime. Baseball is a facet of American culture, complete with its own theme song and food to match. Who doesn't love baseball? We do. Who doesn't love to root for their favorite team? We do. To see the young faces of your son, daughter, niece, nephew or grandchild in their first uniform with big smiles on their faces ready to play, who doesn't want to see that? We do!

Teams interested in scheduling the field for use should contact the Township office @ 610-285-6660.
