Roberts worked in various roles at the township before retiring from his position as the Roads Superintendent in 2010. Even after retirement, he worked as a seasonal employee giving him nearly four decades of service to the township.

Roberts, who is known for his dedication, hard work and love for the township, was also very instrumental in the development in the Hunter Park walking trails and fishing pond.

“Franklin Township, those that have worked and been mentored by Tommy Roberts and The Board of Trustees, are grateful for his contributions and service to our Township,” said Franklin Township Chairman Matt Jennings reading from the Proclamtion.
