OR&W hunting for solicitor

SHADYSIDE – The OR&W Fire District is working to get the district fully functioning. Among one the important parts needed is a legal adviser.

When the fire district began, Ed Sustersic served as the legal adviser, but upon his retirement, the position as legal adviser is available. Sustersic submitted a letter to the fire board stating that due to his retirement, he cannot offer legal advice.

Sustersic also recently submitted his resignation as the solicitor for the Village of Bellaire. Attorney Joe Vavra was appointed as his replacement there.

For anyone that is interesting in the position the fire board ask that they send a letter of interest to the fire board email orwfiredist@gmail.com or contact the fire boards financial officer Jeryl McGaffick at (304) 551-4025.

The fire district is also in the process of redoing the logo for the trucks. Chief David Lenz also stated that they answered 839 calls this year, which is up from 792 calls from the year before.

The next meeting will be held Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. at the Shadyside Fire Station.
