Carroll seeking supervisor candidates

| Thursday, June 12, 2008

CARROLL TOWNSHIP - The township is seeking applicants for a vacant seat on the board of supervisors.

The opening occurred last week when long-time supervisor Lou Resovich died.

Resovich, 79, a former board chairman, served 27 years on the board after a 33-year teaching career.

Chairman Tom Rapp announced at a meeting Tuesday that interested candidates must submit resumes by June 24.

"It was really difficult knowing that Lou is gone," Rapp said. "We had known each other before I got on the board. We had a great relationship.

"But things happen and for him, it might have been a blessing."

Resovich had been in declining health for some time.

Resumes can be mailed to the municipal building in care of Secretary Sharon Cramer, 130 Baird St., Monongahela, 15063.

Rapp said resumes can be dropped off at the office.

The supervisors have 30 days to fill the vacancy.

In other business, the township is going to explore the development of a cat law. Several residents showed up at the meeting complaining about the high number of cats roaming their neighborhood.

"The animal control officer has been to the house (in question) but said that nothing can be done as long as the cats remain on that property," Rapp said. "The problem is, the cats are going to other properties in every direction of that house in the neighborhood."

The township currently has no law pertaining to cats.

The supervisors are going to obtain copies of ordinances enacted by neighboring communities and let Solicitor Herman Bigi look them over before drafting an ordinance.

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.
