Ambridge borough is currently seeking to fill the position of code enforcement officer.
“We’re trying to get someone as quickly as possible,” said Borough Manager Whitney Brady.
Brady wouldn’t comment, calling it a personnel matter and Orlowski couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
Council took a phone vote Wednesday, May 28 to advertise for the position.
Code enforcement handles matters such as zoning and building permits, high grass, demolition and property maintenance.
The borough has been gaining momentum in recent months working to crackdown on property violations. Council formed a code enforcement committee and the borough is welcoming property complaints.
Earlier this month Councilwoman Janet Caldarelli, committee chairwoman, gave an update on several citations that have been issued as well as properties that are now in court or awaiting demolition.
Caldarelli said the code enforcement committee held a meeting in April, where they decided the fire chief and code enforcement officer would begin compiling a list of properties slated for demolition. They are also researching properties that haven’t paid for their occupancy permits and scheduling them for inspection.
A job description for the code inspector is posted online.
