Oakmont seeks new assistant borough manager

Oakmont is looking for a new assistant borough manager.

Carol Moore notified the borough late last month that she is resigning effective Oct. 19.

Moore has been a borough administrator since October 2016. She said she’s moving out of state to explore other opportunities for her family.

“I’m proud to say I was part of the Oakmont community and wish the borough continued prosperity,” she said.

Her position is posted on the website with a salary range of $50,000 to $65,000 depending on experience.

Deadline to apply for the job is Oct. 12.

Moore was instrumental in forming the borough’s pedestrian plan and the subsequent committee to implement the plan and increase safety for borough walkers.

“(She) will be missed,” Councilwoman Carrie DelRosso said. “I was happy to work with Carol as she worked diligently on our Oakmont pedestrian plan initiative. I wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.”

Moore obtained several grants for the borough throughout her career, including an $11,000 state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Peer Grant for a transportation study.

The borough applied for the grant last fall and was awarded it in January.

Moore’s final project in Oakmont is the redesign of the borough’s website, oakmontborough.com.

Borough Manager Lisa Cooper Jensen and council President William Benusa did not return calls or emails seeking comment on Moore’s departure.

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.
