Search for full-time borough manager starts in Aspinwall
The process to hire a new Aspinwall borough manager is under way.
Councilmen Kevin Gordon, Joe Noro, Mark Ellermeyer and Jim Donahoe were scheduled to begin reviewing the 43 resumes submitted for the position last Saturday.
The borough has been without a full-time manager since late 2011 when April Winklmann resigned.
Ed Warchol, who had retired earlier that year, returned on a part-time basis after her resignation.
The 2013 budget did include funding for a full-time manager.
Aspinwall officials were scheduled to finalize the 2013 budget this week.
The millage rate for this year will be set at 5.318 mills. The rate for 2012 was 6.25. Officials planned to keep the tax rate steady and adjust the millage based on assessment numbers from Allegheny County.
Council was scheduled to vote on the budget last month but delayed action until more accurate assessment values were available.
Aspinwall residents will decide if they will pay $3 more per quarter to throw out computers and other electronic items.
The charge from Waste Management is optional for each household, Councilman Joe Noro said.
“The guy will come to your house and tell you exactly how to throw items away and what items to throw away,” Noro said.
State law that goes into effect this month does not allow certain electronics to be thrown out. Noro said residents who don't want to pay the fee can discard those items elsewhere.
