At the Board of Supervisors meeting on Wednesday, May 26, the Board recognized Paul Nickels for his 22 years of service and dedication to the Township government and the community. Paul received the Albert P. Greenleaf "Outstanding Volunteer" Award which was created to recognize outstanding volunteers whose unselfish and dedicated service to the Township has made a significant difference in their community. It is the most prestigious award bestowed by the Board of Supervisors.
Paul reviewed applications and listened to applicants’ presentations about their proposed construction and neighbor questions before deciding on requests for relief from the requirements in the Township’s zoning ordinance. Paul has been generous sharing his experience in the construction industry. During his time on the Board, Paul reviewed 189 Zoning Hearing Board applications and attended 245 hearings.
Thank you, Paul, for over two decades of volunteer service and leadership to West Whiteland Township!
Note: The namesake of the award, Albert “Alby” P. Greenleaf, was a life member of the Chester County Fire Police and the West Whiteland Fire Company where he devoted more than 55 years to serving and bettering his community through his volunteerism. He was the first recipient of the award in 1999.
