Carroll seeking supervisor candidates
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.
