Unity authority manager leaves for Allegheny Valley authority

| Thursday, May 1, 2014, 5:42 p.m.

The leader of the Unity Township Municipal Authority for the past two decades has accepted a new job in Allegheny County.

Authority manager Mike Henry is leaving to become manager of the Allegheny Valley Joint Sewer Authority. His last day will be July 3, said board chairman Ronald Carey.

“Mike was an outstanding manager,” Carey said. “We hate to lose him. We're going to do our best to replace him, but it's going to be very hard.”

Henry could not be reached for comment.

The Allegheny Valley authority serves Harmar, Cheswick, Springdale borough and Springdale Township.

A five-person committee, including two board members, office manager Lori Rodkey and engineer Larry Lennon, will review applicants before the May 7 deadline to identify a replacement, hopefully before Memorial Day, Carey said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
