Many Bridgeville residents know Bill Chilleo as the chief of the Bridgeville Volunteer Fire Department.
Beginning Nov. 1, he’ll also be the borough’s newest public works employee.
Council voted 6-0 earlier this month to hire Chilleo to a full-time position in the public works department. Council president Michael Tolmer was not present for the vote.
“I want to reiterate the depth we had,” said Bruce Ghelarducci, head of the borough’s public works committee. “There were some other good guys. There were some who were making more than we were offering. We did our due diligence, and Bill was the top candidate.”
Chilleo will fill a spot left by retiring public works employee William Phillips.
