Fairview Township Zoning Officer Fired

The Fairview Township Board of Supervisors fired the township officer at the board’s April 2 meeting.

By unanimous vote, supervisors Mike Iorio, Russ Marhold and Bob Orloski terminated Barry Jacob from the position he has held for almost 12 years.

Jacob asked the board if they had received any complaints. Marhold responded that the supervisors wanted to have hours for zoning during the day.

The board hired Frank Tirico to replace Jacob, effective as of April 2, to be paid a monthly salary of $500.00.

In other business, the board noted they are looking for someone to serve on the Board of Directors for the Mountain Top Sanitary Authority due to the recent passing of long-time board member Harry Taylor. Letters of interest can be sent to the Fairview Township Municipal Building.

Marhold noted, “Harry had served on the sanitary authority since its inception in about 1982. He will be sorely missed.”
