Cheswick seeks full-time public works employee
Cheswick is looking for someone to join its public works department after its only full-time employee resigned to take another job.
Councilman Michael Girardi said Dave Houston resigned last week and took a job with Tarentum’s public works department.
“While he was the only full-time public works employee,” Girardi said, “we do have a public works coordinator and several part-time public works employees, so public works activities and projects are still being performed.”
Anyone interested in working for the public works department can get an application at the borough building, 220 S. Atlantic Ave.
Applications should be submitted to the borough secretary by 3 p.m. Friday.
Duties include grounds keeping, winter maintenance and day-to-day maintenance including the use of hand tools, operation of special equipment such as a backhoe, jackhammer and street roller.
Duties also include waterline, sewer line and street repair and maintenance; pump and water tank maintenance and repair; and the basic upkeep and maintenance of equipment.
“Thankfully, we are past the summer rush of major projects and with the onset of fall, grass cutting will begin to decline,” Girardi said. “Additionally, we are still months away from having to worry about snow, so this is probably the best time of the year to be faced with this situation.”
