Robert Homeyer.

Robert Homeyer, who has made a significant impact on Tewksbury through his philanthropy and community involvement has resigned from his position on the Tewksbury Public Library Board of Trustees and as Chairman of the Tewksbury Republican Town Committee.
The resignations were necessitated because Homeyer's has changed his residency to Jupiter, Fla.
"We've had the condo down in Hollywood (Fla.) for several years and my wife Cheryl is down there about nine months a year now," said Homeyer. "I'd been thinking about doing this in (January) 2016 but things came together, we bought a place in Jupiter, so it became January, 2015."
Homeyer is president and CEO of Homeyer Consulting, Inc., a leading international water consulting firm, based in Tewksbury. He has approximately 50 employees locally and he said he plans to keep the Tewksbury headquarters open, while opening a satellite office in Florida.
"My kids, Alex and Christiana, both work for me and they will staying in Tewksbury," said Homeyer, who had lived in Tewksbury 28 years.
Homeyer has served as chairman of the Tewksbury Republican Town Committee for two years, succeeding Don Ordway. He's served six years on the Library Board of Trustees and resigned with a little over two years left on his present term.
At their meeting Tuesday, the Board of Selectmen voted to add a two-year seat on the library board to the April Municipal Ballot. There are already two full, three-year board terms on the ballot. Those are the seats presently occupied by incumbents Paige Impink and Patricia Pino.
If asked to do so by the remaining board members, the Selectmen would appoint an interim Library Trustee to serve through the April 11 election.
In addition to his service to the town and position as a business leader, Homeyer is well-known for generously supporting numerous local groups and non-profit agencies.
"Bob has always been very active in this community," said Selectman Jim Wentworth. "I want to thank him for his commitment to this community."
