Mayor Bill Peduto’s selections for public works and personnel director were approved Tuesday by city council.
Public works director Mike Gable and personnel director Todd Siegel have been leading their respective departments for several weeks in an acting capacity. Tuesday’s vote, which was unanimous, makes their role official.
Mr. Gable is a 39-year veteran of city government who retired as a deputy public works director last year, to head that department. Mr. Gable briefly served as a deputy director of public works for Allegheny County after leaving the city. He was hired in January.
Mr. Siegel was previously the assistant director of the Department of Personnel and Civil Service before being promoted to head the unit in February.
