UPPER POTTSGROVE — The township’s worst kept secret was finally made public Monday night when it was announced that Township Manager Jack Layne has resigned to take a job as manager of Maple Shade, N.J.

Layne began his work with the township in May, 2006, taking over to fill the void left by the surprise resignation of his predecessor, Michael Cotter.

Layne had himself resigned earlier in the year as manager of Pottstown Borough and the Pottstown Borough Authority, a position he had held since January, 2003 after leaving a post in Ohio.

Public Barred From Joint Pottstown, Pottsgrove Sewer Meeting

Editor’s note:  What absolute bullshittery is this BM Flanders!?!  Very shady, dude!

POTTSTOWN, PA — If you live in the borough, or the three surrounding townships who use the borough’s sewer system, the future of your sewer bill was under discussion Tuesday morning — but you would not have been allowed to hear that discussion.

Engineers, managers and lawyers from West Pottsgrove, Upper Pottsgrove and Lower Pottsgrove sat facing each other, and representatives of the Pottstown Borough Authority, in a borough hall meeting room Tuesday morning the township’s unhappiness with the way they must pay for their share of costs at the Pottstown Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Those payments have had a direct impact on the bills paid by sewer users in those townships.

Currently, all three townships send their sewage to the Pottstown plant under agreements with the borough authority.
