Board appoints him to fill vacant seat
South Fayette Township commissioners on Aug. 20 appointed physician Raymond D. Pitetti to serve on the five-member board through Dec. 31, 2015. He is set to finish the unexpired term of Todd Miller, who resigned in July for personal reasons.
Dr. Pitetti, 49, is Associate Medical Director and Chief of the Emergency Department at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
“As a resident of South Fayette Township for over 15 years, I have come to love and appreciate our community and the opportunities it presents,” Dr. Pitetti said in his application letter. “As such, I have a desire to become more involved in guiding and leading our township as it continues to grow and develop.”
Dr. Pitetti has been vice president of the township’s Parks and Recreation Board for the past two years and has served on the boards of the South Fayette Touchdown Club and other township youth sports associations.
He said some of the most important township issues are enhancing commercial and retail development, meeting the recreational needs of the increasing population, and establishing common ground between established and newer residents.
Veteran officer has been Acting Chief since April
The South Fayette Township Board of Commissioners on Aug. 20
appointed John Phoennik as Chief of Police, effective Aug. 25, to head
the 14-officer township police force.
“We’re extremely excited to have John in this leadership position,”
township manager Ryan Eggleston said. “He has great vision, and we look
forward to the continued growth of the department.”
“I’m truly humbled and excited to move the department forward,” Chief
Phoennik said. “I’m looking forward to providing good service to the
residents of the township.”
Chief Phoennik, 50, lives in South Fayette with his wife, Shelley, and three children, who attend the South Fayette Township School District.
The South Fayette Township Board of Commissioners on Aug. 20 appointed Butch Truitt as Public Works Director to head the 15-person department, starting Aug. 25. He has been Acting Public Works Director since May.
“I’m looking forward to it. I think it will be a good fit,” Mr. Truitt said. “We have a bunch of good, talented guys in public works. Their expertise is second to none.”
In April 2013, South Fayette hired Miles H. Truitt Jr.—better known by his nickname, “Butch”—as Parks and Recreation Director. He will continue to hold the post until someone is hired to fill the newly named position of Recreation Director to focus on recreational programming.
Formerly of Oil City, Venango County, Mr. Truitt lives in Bridgeville with his wife, Rita.
