Trafford explores code-enforcement officer's duties
Trafford's next code-enforcement officer could have duties in the borough and in another community.
Council is exploring a partnership with an unidentified municipality in which the two communities would share one person who works full-time on code issues, Councilman John Daykon said.
Daykon said the proposed arrangement would enable the communities to hire someone on a full-time basis who would be eligible for benefits such as vacation pay.
Trafford has had difficulty retaining code officers over the past two years. Two part-timers resigned, and another code officer continues to work on a part-time basis after quitting as the borough's last full-time code officer.
Council approved two appointments to boards.
Mayor Rey Peduzzi will serve on the board of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail, replacing Corey Megon, who resigned.
Renee Kociela joins the borough's recreation board.
Borough officials are making Fourth Street one way going west to east from Brinton Avenue to Cavitt Avenue.
Council approved the change last week to alleviate safety issues near the parking lot at the Manchester Room behind the public safety building.
The existing parking spaces on that section of Fourth Street will remain.
