With a unanimous vote at the regular Jefferson Hills Council meeting, Monday, June 12, Council appointed David T. Montgomery to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Councilman J. Scott Albrecht last month.
Residents may recall that Montgomery served on council from 1986 to 1993. He is currently chairman of the planning board and will be allowed to continue in that chair; however, with the appointment to the council, Montgomery has resigned from the vacancy board. Asked why he came forward once again, he said that he loves “to give back to the community.” He has lived in the borough since 1968. All of the members expressed their gratitude for having his experience over the years in public service. The borough received three possible candidates.
McLean Architects, LLC were approved for the HVAC improvements in the municipal building; council also accepted a proposal from Lantek for $15,875 for new computers servers as well as $4,080 for installation and to transfer documents from the old system to the new one.
The remainder of the short meeting included other financial decisions:
A bid was awarded for $98,711.25 to Hunter Sales for a 2013 International 7400 SFA 4 x 4 cab and chassis, and a bid was approved for a stainless steel dump body, plow and spreader to Walsh Equipment for the Public Works Department. Both awards were made under a COSTARS cooperative purchasing contract.
The meeting adjourned with various council members once again welcoming Montgomery on board.
