Canonsburg Council on Monday unanimously approved the retirement of its borough manager—and members thanked him for his years of service.
Terry Hazlett’s last day in his capacity as manager is April 12.
He has held the position for more than 10 years, and said Monday night that he believed a major accomplishment made during his tunure had to do with Town Park.
"It wasn't an 'I' it was a 'we' but we were able to turn the park around," Hazlett said. "It went from losing money to making money."
Council on Monday also approved a motion to enlist the help from the Department of Community and Economic Development to search for a replacement.
A representative of the government agency, Michael Foreman, will assist the borough at no cost.
The position will be advertised, and a search committee composed of Councilwoman Fran Coleman and Councilmen Joe McGarry and Rich Russo was also formed.
Council hopes to be able to appoint a new borough manager by Memorial Day.
And how will Hazlett be spending his retirement?
“It probably hasn't sunk in yet. I hope to spend more time at Adaptive Sports—a nonprofit organization,” Hazlett said. "I haven't planned anything farther than that."
