Plainfield Township Appoints Highway Commissioner
PLAINFIELD, Il., - Plainfield Township officials appointed Ken Marland as the Plainfield Township Highway Commissioner to fill the term vacated by the untimely death of Sam Reichert.

Upon being named Highway Commissioner, Ken said “One of my first official acts will be to rename the Renwick Road Bridge in memory of Sam. This dedication will permanently honor and remember him for the love he had for Plainfield. I look forward to the challenge of continuing to bring great service to the residents of Plainfield Township.”
