Last week, Todd Knepper, director of the Van Buren Township Department of Public Works, tendered his resignation, explaining he had accepted a DPW Director position with the City of Jackson.
His resignation is effective March 11.
VBT Supervisor Paul White said Knepper will be directing a much larger operation and will be making more money. He said Knepper said the job will give him the opportunity to expand his experience.
Knepper earned a base salary of $73,200 from VBT in 2010.
