Sharpsburg has a full council again.

Greg Domian and Anthony Karpinski Jr. were appointed to borough council last week.

The two will take seats vacated by Renee Procopio and Lou DeLuca, both of whom resigned in January.

Procopio left for personal reasons, and DeLuca took a job as code enforcement officer with the borough.

Domian said he is excited to serve his hometown. He previously served on the borough's civil service commission.

“I'm going to fill this position to the best of my ability and give 110 percent and do what I can to work as a team here,” Domian said.

Domian will lead the borough's personnel committee, a position previously held by current council President Karen Pastor.

Karpinski will lead the zoning, planning and code committee, DeLuca's former position.

He said he thinks Sharpsburg has a good council now and is excited to give something back to his community.

“I will perform my duties to the best of abilities,” Karpinski said.

Borough officials also appointed several people to commissions.

Joseph Bruno was sworn in as a member of the planning commission.

DeLuca, Brittany Reno and Andrew Sabo were sworn in as members of the Shade Tree Commission. That commission is a newly formed multi-municipal group with representatives from Blawnox, Etna and Sharpsburg.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
