New Hanover Township Manager Resigns
Written by Kelly Chandler, Staff Writer

        Ed Wagner, who served as New Hanover township manager for more than seven years, has tendered his resignation.

        New Hanover’s board of supervisors accepted Wagner’s resignation reluctantly Monday night, said board President Martin Dyas.  His last day will be Oct. 11.

        Dyas said Wagner will be missed.

        “He served the township very well.  He did his job, was good to the board, and we are very sad to see him go.  We’ll be in contact with him I’m sure; he agreed to help us out in the future with some things,” he explained. 

        “We wish him luck.  We’re happy for him that’s he’s bettering himself and his family.”

        Dyas said supervisors are in the preliminary stages of seeking candidates for Wagner’s position and no target date has been set to appoint his replacement.

        Wagner is taking a position as the Lower Pottsgrove Township manager.  He said his time in New Hanover, though, was never boring.  

        “Every day is different,” he noted. “I could be dealing with residents with drainage complaints, neighbors against neighbors, or developers who want to know how to grade their property. I get a lot of phone calls and a lot of people walking in who have an issue and want it resolved.  Right now we’re paving so I’m overseeing that…Every day is an adventure.  That’s why I like it.

        “It was a wonderful time here. I met a lot of good residents and the board was very supportive during my tenure.  It’s been really good,” he said.
