North Huntingdon planning director resigns; interim named

Joe Napsha
Andrew W. Blenko, former North Huntingdon planning director

North Huntingdon’s associate planning and zoning director is in charge of the department after the resignation of the former director last month.

Ryan Fonzi was named interim director following the Sept. 6 resignation of Andrew W. Blenko, said Jeff Silka, township manager. Blenko, who had been the township’s planning director since October 2006, left his job with the township for a position in private industry.

Fonzi has been with the planning department since May 2006.

Any decision by the township to advertise for a planning and zoning director will be made at a future date, Silka said. The township commissioners’ next meeting is at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Town House.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
