Three Residents Reappointed to Township Boards

LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Three individuals, whose terms of service on Lower Pottsgrove municipal boards expired or were due to expire, were reappointed Thursday (Jan. 19, 2023) by the township Board of Commissioners during its brief meeting at Sunnybrook Ballroom (at top).

Reappointed to fill positions were township residents:

  • Michael Boccella, as a full member to the Zoning Hearing Board;
  • Todd Daniels, as an alternate member to the Zoning Haring Board; and
  • Garry Schmoltze, to the Vacancy Board.

Board member vacancies, which are solely voluntary positions, open occasionally and commissioners seek to fill them promptly, township Manager Ed Wagner has said in the past. Most township boards – the exception by state law is its Zoning Hearing Board – serve in advisory-only capacities to the Board of Commissioners, which is Lower Pottsgrove’s primary governing body.

If you have an interest in serving as a board member or in some other volunteer capacity, send a letter of interest and a current resume to Wagner at the township municipal building, 2199 Buchert Rd., Pottstown PA 19464. For more information on volunteering, call Wagner at 610-323-0436.
