Mayor William Peduto Makes Nominations to City Boards, Commissions and Authorities
Follows citywide call for volunteers

PITTSBURGH, PA (March 20, 2015) Mayor William Peduto sent 36 nominations for seats on City boards, commissions and authorities to Pittsburgh City Council today.

The nominations will be officially introduced at the regular meeting of council Tuesday. Some, but not all, will be subject to council interviews and votes.

The list follows a February 20 call by Mayor Peduto for volunteers, who were asked to submit applications through the City’s website.
