Chris Young will be the new public works employee in Springdale Township.

Supervisors on Thursday night hired Young at a rate of $15.50 per hour. He replaces Rudy Shondeck.

Supervisors voted 4-0 to end Shondeck's employment but would not say why his employment was ended, citing it as a personnel issue.

Shondeck wasn't home on Thursday night when an attempt was made to seek comment.

In other business

• Officials said installation of sanitary sewers on Melzina and Adeline streets is finished. Residents of the 18 affected properties are in the process of hooking up their homes to the new system.

• Jessica Fulmer has been appointed to fill a vacancy of the zoning hearing board.

• The township is hoping for a federal Community Development Block Grant to replace a waterline on Carson Street, rehabilitate a pump station there and repair an undetermined number of sewer manholes.

• The township received a letter from the Veterans Administration, thanking police Chief Michael Naviglia and his dog for participating in a drug sweep in the Veterans Administration Hospital near Aspinwall.

A VA official said in the letter that no illicit drugs were found.
