Salisbury Township Board of Commissioners President James A. Brown all but made the selection of a new township manager a foregone conclusion when he called the April 27 township meeting to order and, following the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance and a moment of silence, said:

The first item on the meeting agenda under new business was: “Resolution to Appoint Township Manager and Township Secretary.”
