congrats to new board appointees

Last night, the Commission appointed a number of people to serve terms as members of Mt. Lebanon’s volunteer boards and authorities.  These residents meet with their colleagues on a regular schedule throughout the year, bringing their special expertise to the boards and making recommendations to the commission.  Their commitment provides Mt. Lebanon with professional expertise we would not otherwise be able to  afford. If you are interested in serving on a board or authority, go to, where you can read about the various responsibilities and download a common application. It is best to apply for a specific board.  Some board appointments are by ward; some are at-large and some boards have a combination of ward and at-large appointments.

Each board and authority has a commission liaison and a staff liaison.  Assistant Manager Marcia Taylor handles all applications.
