Millcreek Township has new legal counsel.
Mark Shaw was sworn in as the township’s solicitor at Tuesday’s Millcreek supervisors meeting.
The position opened up after former Solicitor Evan Adair announced his retirement.
Shaw’s new role includes providing legal guidance for the entire township and its departments.
Shaw said the initial struggle will be getting a grasp of everything happening within the township, but says he’s up for the challenge and looks forward to it.
“It is very exciting,” Shaw said. “I have worked with the township for a number of years on various matters and really it was something that I looked down into the future, it was something that I was interested in and the firm was interested in.”
Shaw will hold the position for the foreseeable future.
