Dormont manager taking Jefferson Hills position

| Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2007, 12:00 p.m.

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."

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.
