The Board of Supervisors meeting on March 20, 2023, included many several exciting items. 

Middletown Township Police Department’s newest officer, Mike Leonard, was sworn in by Chairperson Anna Payne. Mike and his family are Middletown Township residents, and Mike comes to MTPD after serving for 15 years with Philly PD. We’re excited to have Mike join our PD and look forward to him serving our great Middletown community.

Many volunteer firefighters from Parkland Fire Company were recognized including Captain Bill Oettinger. Middletown Township career firefighters and Parkland Fire Company volunteer firefighters responded to a house fire on February 28.

Captain Bill Oettinger arrived at a house fire on February 28th, in his personal vehicle. Arriving first, he observed a two story buidling filled with smoke and a resident was still inside. He entered the building without protective gear and removed the unconcious homeowner.

The homeowner received immediate medical attention by Middletown Township career firefighters and Penndel EMS personnel and was transported to a local hospital. The homeowner recovered and was discharged after a few days. Bill Oettinger's actions demonstrated the dedication of the volunteers. Everything came together because the volunteers, career staff, and mutual aid response agencies worked hand in hand to provide emergency services to the community.  

The Board of Supervisors also proclaimed March as Colon CancerAwareness Month and National Developmental Disabilities Month. These two proclaiations raise awareness to these issues.
