DuBois PD considers test modification
Friday, April 19, 2013
By Josh Woods Staff Writer
DUBOIS - DuBois City Police Department will investigate the logistics of modifying its civil service test following a brief discussion at yesterday's DuBois City Council work session.
Councilman Ed Walsh asked if the department could pool its part-timers and how long it would take to modify the civil service test. The discussion stemmed from a civil service commission recommendation that would appear on Monday's city council agenda. The civil service commission recommended Police Chief Mike DiLullo be allowed to proceed with advertising the competitive examination for police officer in an official notice.
City Manager John "Herm" Suplizio reminded the public the city's annual spring cleanup is slated for tomorrow from 9-11 a.m. The city's fire hydrants would be flushed beginning April 28, Suplizio said.
"Anti-skid must be removed from all city sidewalks by May 15," said Code Enforcement Officer Zac Lawhead. "Now's the time to start cleaning up and preparing for summer."
In other business, Council-woman Diane Bernardo asked Engineer Chris Nasuti about a crosswalk that's being installed near First Commonwealth Bank. Bernardo asked if the traffic light could be held so pedestrian traffic could cross from Beaver Meadow Walkway. Nasuti said sidewalks have been completed and a stencil has been laid out for a crosswalk. Nasuti said he'd inquire about holding the traffic light.
Council approved the following requests:
• Tri-County Church to use City Park (including the stage, two pavilions, the basketball court and grassy area) July 22-25 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Tammy Meholick for city crews to put up flags throughout the downtown and Liberty Boulevard areas for National Day of Prayer.
• Downtown DuBois Revitalization Group, on behalf of Clearfield-Jefferson Farmer's Market, to use the Pershing parking lot for its 2013 DuBois Area farmer's market Saturdays from July 6 through Oct. 26 from 7:15-11:30 a.m. with free parking until 11:30 a.m.
Councilmen James Aughen-baugh and Randy Schmidt were absent from the meeting.
