It’s been nearly a year, but the Lower Swatara Twp. commissioners finally have hired a township manager.
The commissioners unanimously voted to hire Sam Monticello as their new manager effective Monday, Feb. 17.
Monticello, a consultant for a company in Scranton, will fill the position vacated by Harry Krot last year.
Monticello was one of four candidates interviewed after the township received numerous resumes. Some of Monticello’s experience, including time as a manager of the city of Hazleton, really stood out to the board, said Tom Mehaffie, president of the board of commissioners.
“I think we had a real good group of candidates,” Mehaffie said.
Monticello’s salary has not been determined, Mehaffie said. The township will sign a contract with Monticello once a background check is complete.
