Butler County judge rules on size of Center board of supervisors

A Butler County judge on Wednesday tossed out a referendum that would have reduced the Center board of supervisors from five members to three.

In November, more than 2,300 voters approved the referendum, which would have meant that voters would choose three supervisors to start serving in January 2014. Three supervisors appealed in Butler County Court, saying only the governor, after a Senate hearing, could remove them from office before their terms expired.

Common Pleas Judge S. Michael Yager ruled that voters in the May primary election and November general election will only choose two supervisors, with the expiration of six-year terms for supervisors Andrew Erie and Ronald E. Flatt. Supervisor Kenneth J. Frenchak will serve until Jan. 4, 2016, and Philip Wulff and Edward G. Latuska will serve until Jan. 1, 2018, when their terms expire.

The board, overseeing about 8,000 residents, was last a three-member panel in 2001.
