A New Whiteland Town Council member has resigned his position, and Republican leaders soon will select his replacement.
Terry Spencer resigned as as a council member this month to become the New Whiteland town manager. His new position is full time with a salary of $51,000 a year.
The town has not had a manager, who serves as a connection between the residents and council members, in 16 years. The council felt it was necessary to add the position now so that residents could have their problems addressed immediately rather than waiting for the next council meeting, Clerk-Treasurer Maribeth Alspach said.
