RAYMOND D. PITETTI JOINS SOUTH FAYETTE COMMISSIONERS

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.



JOHN PHOENNIK APPOINTED CHIEF OF POLICE

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. A 25-year veteran of the South Fayette Township Police Department, Chief Phoennik has been Acting Police Chief since April, following the retirement of Louis Volle.

“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.”  Chief Phoennik said he will facilitate teamwork and communication among the officers and with the public.

“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.” A police officer for 28 years, Chief Phoennik began his career in the neighboring communities of Heidelberg, Oakdale, North Fayette and Bridgeville before joining the South Fayette force in 1990. He was promoted to sergeant in 2000 and became captain—the highest rank below chief—in 2002.

Chief Phoennik, 50, lives in South Fayette with his wife, Shelley, and three children, who attend the South Fayette Township School District.


BUTCH TRUITT APPOINTED PUBLC WORKS DIRECTOR

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.
