Majority of rec board resigns amid library questions

Summit Township supervisors held the August public meeting with Supervisor Bill Agnew leading the salute to the American flag.

Supervisors Lud Zarembinski and Jerauld Smith were in attendance and Secretary Cindy McCoy took the minutes. There were 9 citizens present.

For Public Comment, SuAnn Dendes, who sits on the Harmonsburg Library Board and the Summit Township Parks and Rec Board, took the floor to complain about the treatment of their colleague, who had attended the Summit Township July Supervisors meeting.

Theresa Novosel, who is the Librarian at the Harmonsburg Library, had attended the July public meeting, and had expressed her opinion to the Summit Supervisors regarding the ongoing discussions about the future of the Harmonsburg Library and where it may be located.

Novosel had made several statements, which were quoted in The Community News.

Dendes accused The Community News of “slandering and making untrue statements in the newspaper about a great person,” in reference to Novosel’s comments at the July meeting, and she and her colleagues were not going to stand by and allow this.
