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.
“I want to extend my thanks to everyone who reached out and pledged their time to volunteer. That includes those for whom we unfortunately could not find seats,” Mayor Peduto said.
