The new chief of the Maytown- East Donegal Township Fire Department was announced at the monthly meeting of the East Donegal Township Board of Supervisors.
Supervisor Tom Jones said at the meeting on Thursday, July 5, that Adam Kosheba submitted his resignation because he is moving out of East Donegal Township.
The fire department’s website, maytownedfd.com, says Kosheba was chief for more than 20 years and is now assistant fire chief. There is a year and a half left on Kosheba’s term, Jones said.
The Board of Directors chose Matt Kratz to serve the rest of the term, beginning June 19, according to the fire department’s website.
Jones said Kratz was relatively new to the
department and had worked at the Fire Department Mount Joy.
He described Kratz as “well-respected and generally, across the board, I think, a good unifier.”
Also at the supervisors’ meeting, it was announced the Planning Commission discussed R& J Field at its meeting, because township residents do not have access to the field.
Donegal School District officials lock the gates when the field is not in use.
“We’ve restricted use based on their desire to keep the field as pristine as possible,” said Township Manager Jeffrey Butler.
Following the Park Commission’s collection of public comments from its parks survey, the Planning Commission will likely bring recommendations to the township supervisors about the locked field.
The next meeting of the Board of Supervisors will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 2, at the East Donegal Township Municipal Building at 190 Rock Point Road, Marietta.
