Oakmont officials plan to hire another interim borough manager as the search for a permanent replacement continues.

Councilwoman Carrie DelRosso said about 60 candidates have submitted resumes.

“As a member of council, it is our responsibility to provide the borough with the most qualified professional who can manage the borough to the quality it deserves,” DelRosso said.

Council discussed the issue at an executive session Jan. 22.

Retired Sewickley Borough Manager Kevin Flannery was tapped as Oakmont’s interim manager in late November after longtime manager Lisa Cooper Jensen resigned. She served the borough in several capacities since mid-1986.

Her salary was listed in last year’s budget at $106,090.

Flannery is expected to remain on staff through the end of January.

Council President William Benusa said he was a tremendous asset to the borough.

“He’s been fantastic,” Benusa said. “He’ll be missed. I wish he could stay longer.”

Former Avonmore Borough Manager Harry Dilmore is expected to be Oakmont’s next interim manager.

His salary and projected length of service was not announced.

Dilmore’s hiring will likely be ratified Feb. 19 since council did not act on it this month.

The manager position remains posted under the “Employment Opportunities” tab of the borough website, oakmontborough.com .

The post listed a Nov. 30 deadline to submit resumes. However, council plans to readvertise the position next month.

A new deadline to submit resumes was not announced.

Requirements include a master’s degree in public administration, planning or other government-related field. A college degree in political science or other related field and any relevant combination of experience and education will be considered.

Interested parties can email cover letters and resumes to admin.assistant@oakmontborough.com or send them to 767 Fifth St., Oakmont, Pa, 15139.

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.
