DuBOIS — The Sandy Township supervisors acknowledged and expressed appreciation to Dave Monella, who attended his last meeting Monday night as the municipality’s manager.
Monella submitted his letter of resignation at the Oct. 15 meeting, saying he would pursue a job in the private sector. His resignation is effective Nov. 15.
“I know we told Dave last time but I wanted to emphasize again that we appreciate all you did for the township in the 24 years that you were here,” said Supervisor Dave Sylvis. “Thank you for your hard work and we wish you good luck in your future.”
“I’ll say exactly the same thing,” said Supervisor Mark Sullivan. “Good luck, Dave.”
“I just want to thank Dave for his years of service and wish him good luck,” said Supervisor Kevin Salandra.
“I too want to wish you the best,” said Supervisors’ Chairman Jim Jeffers. “Thank you for putting up with five different opinions and directions. You definitely have donated a lot of yourself to the township through the road department and as manager. I thank you again and wish you the best.”
Solicitor Greg Kruk said it’s been great to work with Monella over the last few years.
“He’s made it easier than it otherwise could have been. He’s been a very good manager,” said Kruk.
An executive session was held following Monday’s meeting to discuss the manager and chief of police positions, according to Kruk.
Due to Veterans Day, the township cleanup day is going to be Tuesday, Nov. 13, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the township building.
Monella said that Advanced Disposal has not announced a date yet for leaf pickup in the township. It could be held the first week of December, he said. When a date is set, Monella said the township will let the public know.
