Dormont manager taking Jefferson Hills position
Dormont Borough Manager George Zboyovsky said he loved his job, but found it prudent to hand in his resignation effective Sept. 7.
Jefferson Hills council voted 5-2 last week to hire him as their manager. He is meeting with council members there to finalize the terms of the contract.
"We're picking up a tremendous asset for the community," Jefferson Hills Councilman Dominic Serapiglia said.
Zboyovsky, 40, of Brentwood, said he didn't feel "comfortable" with the victors in the primary election for Dormont Council and thought he might be fired. He said he expected nitpicking and micro-management, and disagreed with their "methods, vision and goals."
He declined to identify who he meant. "I think people know who they are," he said.
Dormont hired him in May 2006 to manage the borough of 9,000 people with an annual budget of $6.7 million.
Mayor Thomas Lloyd said Zboyovsky was one of the best managers the borough ever had.
"It's a big loss for Dormont. I'm sorry to see him go. I understand why and I don't blame him a bit," council member Mary Beth Kovic said. "He was dedicated to his job and cared about the community."
