'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

More than a year after Leetsdale Council members eliminated the borough-manager position, leaders are seeking to once again fill the role.

In a job posting on the borough's website, Leetsdale officials have set an Aug. 23 deadline for applicants interested in the borough manager job.

Leetsdale Council President Joe McGurk could not immediately be reached for comment on Wednesday. No one answered the Leetsdale Borough office phone this afternoon.

McGurk and four other council members ran on a campaign pledge in 2011 to eliminate the borough-manager and junior-clerk positions and reinstate Elizabeth Petalino as secretary/treasurer.

In January 2012, then-manager Paul Scimio was ousted from his position following accusations that some officials improperly used borough-issued credit cards.

Following a state Ethics Commission investigation, Scimio last year was ordered to pay $1,078 to Leetsdale as part of a consent agreement after the commission determined he violated the state Ethics Act by using a borough-issued credit card for personal expenses.

The commission found that Scimio did not use his authority as a councilman to secure his job in 2010 as borough manager.

In the ad for a new borough manager, resumes are directed to the Allegheny County Department of Community and Economic Development.
