Antrim Township names public works director

PAT FRIDGEN

Carl Rundquist, a Chambersburg resident, was identified as the new Antrim Township public works director at the Board of Supervisors meeting June 28. He was hired two weeks ago, but was not named until he had time to give notice at his current job.

Rundquist will begin work July 18 at a salary of $70,000. That makes him the highest-paid employee in the township.

Antrim administrator Brad Graham said the wage was deemed appropriate because of Rundquist’s background and experience. He formerly worked for the Borough of Chambersburg and is now employed in another community. He is a certified engineer and a certified wastewater and water plant operator.

“We hope he’ll be able to work with our engineers more closely, and be able to engineer small projects in-house,” said Graham. “He has experience doing that.”

Online newspaper archives refer to Rundquist from at least 2007 until 2010 as the Chambersburg water and sewer department superintendent.
