A former township council member is set to become a commissioner on the Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority board.

Susan Lydecker, a Sanford Road resident, currently serves as an alternate commissioner on the board of the water-sewer utility. The township council will vote Tuesday night on whether to appoint her to a term as a regular member of the board, replacing Joseph Grisanti, who was recently appointed as Brick’s new municipal court judge.

Lydecker’s term would last through Jan. 31, 2020.

Commissioners with the BTMUA qualify for a taxpayer-funded health benefits package. It is not known whether or not Lydecker will take the package. During her time on the governing body, she did not accept a benefits package, records showed.

Lydecker served on the township council – including a year as council president – for one term which ended Jan. 1, 2016. She decided against running for re-election in 2015.
