The following statement was issued to the press by the Antrim Township Board of Supervisors:
To the Citizens of Antrim Township:
Today, the Board of Supervisors for Antrim Township eliminated the positions of six employees of Antrim Township. These employees were eliminated as a direct result of a re-organization plan recommended by Dhillon Management Services, who was hired by the Board of Supervisors to perform a complete analysis of the township's management, operations, staffing, and spacing needs. This assessment was completed by a highly regarded, objective, and professional consulting firm and was hired after extensive interviews and many positive recommendations from other municipalities who have retained this firms' services. Our intentions when hiring Dhillon Management Services were to find ways in which we could improve the operations of your township and determine if a new municipal building was needed, while focusing on efficiency and fiduciary responsibility. It was never our intent to eliminate individual positions unless they were found to be unnecessary by this professional assessment.
