Recent hires in City Hall

--Updated 4:09 p.m.--

The City of Buffalo has a number of recently hired employees.

At the Buffalo Sewer Authority, Michael Crapo, Brian Ray, Matthew Dunford and Brian Nagy were hired as seasonal laborers at a pay rate of $95 per day.

Mark Lewandowski and Daniel O'Sullivan were made permanent wastewater treatment plant operators at an hourly rate of $16.89.

In the Comptroller's Office, Ronald L. Wachowski was given a temporary promotion moved from provisional senior accountant to assistant auditor. Wachowski was bumped from his previous position because of a series of personnel changes. His starting salary is $44,375.

Deborah Tucker was hired as an intern in the City Clerk's office at a rate of $10 an hour. Tucker had been an aide to Ellicott Council Member Darius G. Pridgen.

In the Office of Strategic Planning's Real Estate Division, Mark Welch was hired as a seasonal laborer at $11.87 an hour.

Last month, Lyana M. Luciano was appointed to an $11.87-an-hour seasonal clerk post in the Department of Assessment and Taxation, a job she previously held.

Also last month, the Sewer Authority provisionally appointed Dawn Cordero as a senior sanitary chemist, at a $66,015 salary. At the same time, Robert Carroll was appointed as a temporary sanitary chemist, with a $62,084 salary. Two others were made permanent laborers: William Conroy and Gregory Reusch. Their pay rate is $16.39 per hour.

Here's a recent story I did about other recent hires in the comptroller's and clerk's offices, as well as to Common Council central staff.
