WESTTOWN TOWNSHIP, PA— Abruptly and without explanation, township supervisors have replaced Township Manager Bob Layman.
“We don’t discuss personnel matters,” said Carol DeWolf, chairwoman of the board of supervisors. “We have handled all of this in executive session as we are allowed to.”
Supervisors declined to comment on the circumstances surrounding Layman’s departure.
According to the township code “the Manager shall be appointed for an indefinite term by a majority of all the members of the Board, shall serve at the pleasure of the Board, and shall be subject to removal by the Board by majority vote. At least 15 days before such removal, the Board shall furnish the Manager with a written statement setting forth its intention to remove the Manager.”
Layman served the township for 11 years.
