After extensive debate at the Nov. 1 meeting, the Delhi Township Board of Trustees decided to continue ahead with its original plan in appointing a new township treasurer. In wake of the retirement of current township treasurer Harry Ammon, which will be effective at the end of the year, the board is tasked with appointing a replacement until the general elections in 2012. But Trustee Derek Bajema voiced concerns during last Tuesday’s meeting about whether the decision should instead be left up to the voting public, suggesting the candidates for treasurer be placed on the ballot in the upcoming primary. “I just think this is a decision that should be left up to the people to decide,” Bajema said during the meeting.
