West Cocalico hires new manager Carolyn Friesema
The search is over. Township supervisors made it official at their meeting last Thursday when they introduced Carolyn Friesema as the new manager of West Cocalico. Although new to the township, Friesema is no stranger to the area. For the past three years she has worked for Adamstown Borough as office manager. While I enjoyed my time (in Adamstown), I jumped at this opportunity to move to the next level, Friesema said. I was afraid that if I didn’t apply now, I might be waiting for another job like this to open up for a long while.
Supervisor chairman Jacque Smith said Friesema was chosen from a field of more than 45 applicants, some from as far away as California. In the end, he said, it was her local ties to the community, her previous experience and her friendly personality that won them over. Friesema will take over the position vacated by Norma Enck, who retired at the end of March after working for West Cocalico for 39 years. I know I have really big shoes to fill, Friesema said of Enck. Smith said he’s confidant Friesema is up to the challenge. Going from a borough to a township, there is a lot she will have to learn, but I m sure she’ll get the hang of it quickly, he said. In another matter, supervisors authorized a motion to place liens on the homes of 22 residents who have yet to pay their streetlight taxes. Together, the residents owe the township about $2,652 in 2010 delinquent bills. Township property owners are charged a street tax of $1.56 per front foot of property, with a maximum of 100 feet, or $156.
