LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Rich Wood, a long-time Lower Pottsgrove resident who served the township in a variety of volunteer positions, has tendered his resignation from its Parks and Recreation Commission because his family is relocating to Virginia, Manager Ed Wagner said Monday (April 3, 2017). The Board of Commissioners accepted Wood’s letter with what commissioners’ Vice President Stephen Klotz described as “deep regret.”
Klotz and fellow board member Robert Moholland both talked about years they had spent working side-by-side with Wood on projects involving the Pottsgrove Soccer Club, the parks board, the township Planning Commission, and other groups. “He’s been involved in a lot,” Klotz said of Wood, “and he’s going to be missed here.”
“It’s a huge loss for us,” Wagner agreed.
Wood currently works as a regional manager for the Montgomery County Department of Parks, Trails & Historic Sites. Board members, during their first meeting of this month, asked Wagner to send Wood a letter of appreciation and thanks on their behalf and that of township residents.
In unrelated volunteer personnel matters Monday, commissioners also:
- Reappointed Thomas Troutman to Lower Pottsgrove’s Parks and Recreation Commission; and
- Reappointed Jacob Daily to its Civil Service Commission.
