After 18 years as a council member, followed by 19 years as mayor, Dormont Mayor Tom Lloyd said he plans to retire from his position in the borough.
Lloyd said he has not set a date for when he will step down from his position, but said he likely will not finish his current term as mayor, which ends next year.
“It’s a long time that I’ve served here and I think it’s about time for me to step down,” Lloyd said. “It’s going to happen, it’s just there’s no time frame really set.”
Lloyd said the time he spent as mayor was not without its rough spots, but that he always enjoyed serving the borough and its residents. He said he thinks he’s leaving the borough in good hands with the current council members, and the new hires to the borough’s administrative staff.
“I’ve enjoyed it,” he said. “The borough is doing such a turnaround now with the new council, and with Mr. Naftal, who was an excellent pick to be the borough manager. Things are really looking up now and I think this group is going to do some really good things.”
