Paul Trilli was appointed to fill a vacancy on the Ross board of commissioners at a special meeting on Friday.

Trilli, the Heinz Field/Aramark operations director, will replace 7th Ward commissioner Gerald O'Brien, who resigned on Nov. 18 to serve as the township's tax collector.

Commissioners Grace Stanko, Grant Montgomery and David Mikec and vacancy board chair George Tunney voted for Trilli. Commissioner Lana Mazur abstained. Commissioners Peter Ferraro, John Sponcer, Chris Rand Eyster and Daniel DeMarco did not attend the meeting.

Retired truck driver Patrick Mullin was nominated for the position, but did not receive any votes.

Trilli will join newly elected commissioners Jeremy Shaffer and Stephen Krobel, who will replace Ferraro and Eyster in January.
