Struthers looks to hire police officers, maintenance position

STRUTHERS — Applications are being accepted to fill several key positions in the city.

In her report during Wednesday’s regular city council meeting, Mayor Catherine Cercone Miller announced the need to hire full- and part-time officers for the Struthers Police Department, as well as fill a utility assistant maintenance position at the Struthers Sewage Plant on Lowellville Road.

Those interested in the positions are required to pass a civil service exam that will be administered at 6 p.m. April 10 in Mauthe Park, 174 Smithfield St. Anyone interested in joining the police department also must pass a physical fitness examination that will be given at 10 a.m. April 20 at Struthers Stadium, 699 Garfield St.

Those interested in applying for the assistant maintenance spot also are required to have a high school diploma or general education development.

Applications for the wastewater treatment plant and police department positions are due by 3:30 p.m. April 5 at city hall, 6 Elm St., Miller said.

Also during Wednesday’s session, the mayor sought to dispel rumors she said she’s heard that Selah restaurant in the city’s downtown is closing.

“We want to assure everyone that this is not true,” Miller said in her report. “They have no plans on closing and will remain open and continue to flourish as a cornerstone in downtown Struthers.”

In addition, the city is preparing to host its annual Easter egg hunt, set for 10 a.m. Saturday at the Laddie J. Fedor Field’s Steve Belichick Complex, 111 Euclid Ave. In the event of inclement weather, the gathering may be held at the fieldhouse, Miller said.

The festivities will include the Easter bunny arriving on a firetruck.
