FLINT TWP. — The Board of Trustees have accepted the resignation of John Ervin, an employee of 35 years.
He was the township’s first controller, first retiring in 2007, but returned in a part-time capacity in the treasurer’s office.
Supervisor Karyn Miller praised Ervin for his service and cited his recent work in creating a history of the sewer and water department.
“A person who has 35 years of work experience takes with them a lot of valuable information,,’’ Miller said. “He has done his best to leave that here for those who carry on.
“He has been easy to work with, an honest man and very, very knowledgeable. I thank him for all the work he has done here in Flint Township.’’
Ervin was not present at the meeting and could not be reached for comment about his future plans. Trustee George Menoutes added “with regret’’ to his vote to accept Ervin’s resignation.
