Franklin Park seeks applicants for council vacancy

Franklin Park is seeking to fill the council seat vacated by Richard H. Hartman, who resigned effective Oct. 31.

The term will expire at the end of 2015.

Hartman, 83, had served as a councilman since January 2000. He served for about six months in 1985 until he took a job as a building inspector for the borough, Franklin Park Manager Ambrose Rocca said.

Those interested in applying for Hartman’s seat in Ward II should submit a letter of interest to Franklin Park Borough, 2344 West Ingomar Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15237 or [email protected] by Nov. 17.

Qualified applicants must have been residents of the borough for at least a year, and be registered voters. Council will conduct interviews and make a selection during the Nov. 19 pre-meeting, which will start at 7:15 p.m.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
