Westmoreland commissioners make appointments

Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014, 6:18 p.m.
 

Westmoreland County commissioners on Thursday filled two slots on the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County board of directors.

Commissioners reappointed Jerome DeFabo to a third five-year term. Dr. Jawdat Nikoula of Greensburg was chosen serve the remaining two years of the term of Keith Staso, who resigned from the five-member board last month.

Staso was appointed Thursday to serve as a county representative on the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission, a regional planning body that oversees regional transportation efforts.

Commissioners Charles Anderson and Tyler Courtney also reappointed former county commissioner Tom Ceraso and Murrysville Mayor Bob Brooks to the board.

Anderson and Courtney also serve as the county's representatives on the commission.

Commissioner Ted Kopas voted against the commission appointments.

“Historically all three commissioners serve on the board,” Kopas said.
