May 13, 2014 - Following the recent resignation of a Millcreek Water Authority board member, a Millcreek supervisor is filling that spot.

The Millcreek Twp supervisors voted 2-to-1 approving the appointment of Rick Figaski to the Millcreek Water Authority board.

Of course, the water authority is in the center of controversy with litigation underway, and a pending sale.

Figaski has vocalized that he supports the sale of the authority and said his views and opinions will add a fresh perspective to the board.

The board approved this appointment 2-to-1: supervisor Brian McGrath voted no.

McGrath said this appointment may put everyone in a "strange" and "uncomfortable" position, considering all that is going on with the authority.
