DePasquale PWSA audit points finger at city, authority relationship as source of water troubles

DePasquale PWSA audit points finger at city, authority relationship as source of water troubles

Releasing an audit of the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority Wednesday, Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale made the point that the Authority was bound to fail from its inception in 1984 due to bad deals and poor management.

However, despite that observation, the main takeaway from his office’s audit started earlier this year with the permission of the PWSA, may mean DePasquale faces some supernatural fury from his grandfather, the famously colorful Pittsburgh city councilman Eugene ‘Jeep’ DePasquale.

Rep. DeLuca calls for PDE oversight of troubled Penn Hills School District

Rep. DeLuca calls for PDE oversight of troubled Penn Hills School District

In light of a number of different issues facing the Penn Hills School District, Rep. Tony DeLuca (D-Penn Hills) has asked the state Department of Education to place the district into the state’s financial recovery program and to appoint a qualified chief financial recovery officer to oversee the district.

In a letter to the Executive Secretary David Volkman, DeLuca expressed concern regarding how the appointment of a new school board member was handled following the recent resignation of a board member.

“This is a District desperately in need of fresh insight and oversight,” wrote DeLuca. “I once again implore you to take action for the betterment of this District before it’s too late. I feel strongly the financial situation will not, nor cannot, improve without the intervention of the Commonwealth. Each action the Board takes confirms my belief.”
