Monroeville is going to need a replacement for Councilman Nicholas Gresock when after he is sworn in as mayor next week at the council reorganizational meeting.

Letters of intent and resumes to fill the Ward 2 seat will be accepted at the municipal office until Gresock becomes mayor at Tuesday's meeting. Candidates must have lived in Ward 2 for at least a year to be considered.

Council will have 45 days from the reorganizational meeting to appoint a replacement.

Municipal Manager Tim Little said an appointment is not expected at the meeting. Two resumes from candidates seeking appointment had been received as of Thursday, he added.

“There hasn't been any inkling about appointing anybody,” he said.

The appointed council member will serve through 2018. A primary election for candidates to fill the seat will take place in May. The candidate who wins the general election in November will serve out the final year of Gresock's term in 2019.

Gresock will replace Mayor Gregory Erosenko, who stepped down to run unopposed for a Ward 5 council seat in November.

Returning to office after re-election are Linda Gaydos, Thomas Wilson and Ronald Harvey.

The reorganizational meeting is 7 p.m. in council chambers of the municipal building at 2700 Monroeville Blvd.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
