BATH TWP.: The Bath Township Board of Trustees met Thursday in the annual settlement meeting, the last meeting of the calendar year for the trustees, to address a number of issues.
Among the items approved was the contract with Vito Sinopoli for the full-time administrator’s position, effective Tuesday. Sinopoli was selected in October from a pool of 33 candidates for the position.
Sinopoli will work with Bill Snow, the current and interim administrator, as deputy administrator until Snow’s planned retirement on March 31. At that time, Sinopoli will become the Bath Township Administrator.
In a related matter, trustees accepted the resignation of Sinopoli from the Bath Police Department, effective Monday. Sinopoli was a Bath police officer for 27 years when he applied for the administrator’s post.
In other action at the meeting, trustees approved a motion to write-off $3,338 in unpaid emergency medical services billing charges. Bath routinely charges the insurance companies of non-Bath residents when township personnel provide EMS. This amount written off is one-year beyond the billing cycle, according to officials.
Also in the meeting, Trustee Elaina Goodrich was elected to serve as president of the Board of Trustees in 2013, with Trustee James Nelson serving as vice-president. Trustees traditionally rotate these leadership roles.
