Springdale Township replaces public works employee
Chris Young will be the new public works employee in Springdale Township.
Supervisors on Thursday night hired Young at a rate of $15.50 per hour. He replaces Rudy Shondeck.
Supervisors voted 4-0 to end Shondeck's employment but would not say why his employment was ended, citing it as a personnel issue.
Shondeck wasn't home on Thursday night when an attempt was made to seek comment.
