Wilmerding council will change its Sept. 17 workshop to a voting meeting, at which they may decide who will supervise the public works department.

No one was named Tuesday to the position, which has been vacant for several years, but councilors expressed confidence that a decision is imminent.

Councilman William Pricener said the borough received resumes from eight candidates. Seven were interviewed, and three returned for a second interview.

“All are good candidates for the position,” he said. “Hopefully, we are going to make a decision in the next few weeks.”

Pricener said the department is down to one worker because another is off with an injury. He commended Brandon Steininger for keeping the borough in order during a very challenging month alone on the job, but said it is necessary to bring in part-time help.

Anthony Martincic was hired for 20 hours per week as casual help. The vote was 6-0, with Councilman Michael Trkula absent.

Council approved an ordinance amendment that regulates the condition in which contractors leave vacant properties after demolition projects.

Solicitor Greg Evashavik said council wanted to tighten the regulations to make sure borough properties are left in clean, safe conditions.
