Roger Lysle to Retire
After over 40 years of service to Kennett Township, we are both excited and sad for Roger Lysle to retire as the Kennett Township Public Works Director. We are excited for Roger to embark on the next chapter of his life, enjoying time with family, friends, and especially fulfilling his role of "Pop-pop." However, we are also sad because Roger is truly irreplaceable.
"Not only is it rare to have an employee stay with one organization for 40+ years, it is even more rare that that employee would perform their job so selflessly and be such a positive asset to the organization. That is Roger Lysle," says Supervisor Chair Dr. Richard Leff.
"The staff will surely miss Roger, but I think the residents of Kennett Township will miss him more. In his years working for Kennett Township, he has without doubt forged many relationships." added Supervisor Vice-Chair Scudder Stevens.
Roger's last day will be tomorrow, Friday, January 14th. Newly elected Supervisor Geoffrey Gamble, Esq. noted Lysle's work ethic as he will be taking Gamble on a tour of the Township the day before his last day. "To be this close to retirement and still care enough to teach me all he can about our Township is remarkable."
While all can agree Lysle is irreplaceable, the Township will begin a search for a new Public Works Director in the coming month. Until then, the rest of the Road Crew will be running day-to-day business. For any questions or concerns, please call the Public Works Garage at 610-444-5130 and leave a message. One of our Road Crew will get back to you. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org.
