Monroeville interim manager Lynette McKinney said Wednesday she will recommend that council vote to hire acting police Chief Steven Pascarella to be the municipality's chief.
Acting Chief Pascarella, formerly the assistant chief, was appointed to the acting chief position after last month's demotion of former Chief Doug Cole.
Ms. McKinney said Chief Pascarella was the only applicant for the position. The job listing was posted in-house for two weeks, Ms. McKinney said, per the employee handbook, but not advertised elsewhere.
Council is scheduled to vote on a resolution to approve the appointment during a special meeting tonight. If approved, he will be sworn in during council's regular meeting Tuesday.
