    MILFORD - Milford Township Supervisors’ Chair Scott Fean has submitted his resignation from the post. Vice-chair Gary Williams, who has chaired most of the township meetings during the past year in Fean’s absence, announced the resignation Monday. He said the township will advertise for candidates and will name a new supervisor within 30 days. Fean, who was re-elected to third, six-year term in 2005, devoted much of a two-page handwritten, undated letter to recounting improvements made to township services and infrastructure during the current board’s tenure. “This being said, I believe the township is in as good a shape as it can be and it is time I move on.” He thanked his colleagues on the board and offered special thanks to Secretary-Treasurer Viola Canouse. “Without her knowledge, dedication and commitment, my work, in fact all of our work, would be a lot harder.” He did not give a specific reason for his departure, but he did cite his sons’ progress nearing graduation in college and high school. Township officials have said Fean’s work schedule at the Pike County Prison has made his attendance difficult. Williams said the appointed successor would serve though this year and 2007, and would then need to seek election to the remaining four years of Fean’s term in November of 2007.
