Former Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Mike Huss says he is continuing to work for the city since Boston officials passed him up for the fire commissioner's post there.

Huss, 46, was one of three finalists for the job, but Boston Mayor Martin Walsh this month picked Joseph E. Finn, a deputy chief in the Boston Fire Department who gained prominence as the incident commander at a fire in that city's Back Bay neighborhood that killed two firefighters in March.

Huss said Sunday he had mixed feelings about the decision because he liked Boston but so much of his family remains in the Pittsburgh area. He continues to work for the Department of Public Safety, though he declined to comment on his role there or on any other job prospects.
