BETHLEHEM TWP., Pa. - The Bethlehem Township Board of Commissioners at its Monday evening meeting lauded the service of Ron Todd, former civil service commission member, who recently passed away.
Board President Michael Hudak said Todd served 26 years on the commission. The board stressed "the loyal and dedicated service" of Todd.
In other business, the board unanimously approved the appointment of retired township police Captain George Boksan to the civil service commission.
"He's well educated in this job," Hudak said.
The board also decided to proceed forward with applying for a Northampton County Gaming Revenue and Economic Redevelopment Authority grant. The grant will allow the township to purchase two police vehicles and an ambulance.
According to Commissioner Thomas Nolan, the township has $740,000 for the use of grants.
Also during the meeting, Hudak said the township would like to set up one or two dates allowing citizens to walk through the Housenick Mansion.
Issues related to indemnification and insurance have yet to be resolved.
"We'll be releasing a date," Hudak said. "I can' t say exactly when, for the public to get in there."
The board will hold its next meeting 7 p.m. Nov. 20 in the municipal building at 4225 Easton Ave.
