The Lackawanna School Board regrouped under new leadership Monday and with a couple of new faces at the table.
Patricia Bryniarski and Sandra Seitz, who won seats in May's elections, took their places with the board. But before getting down to business, the group recessed for a 25-minute executive session called for the vague purpose "to discuss personnel."
Reconvening the reorganization meeting, the board voted unanimously in making routine appointments -- with a couple of exceptions. The first was the board presidency.
There were two nominations: Kevin Rozwood was nominated by Ronald Miller; Michael Sanders by Dennis Chudzik. Rozwood won the title by a count of 5-2; Sanders and Chudzik voted no.
Bryniarski was unanimously elected vice president.
Among other business:
*Daniel Radwanski was retained as School Board clerk, at an annual salary of $37,869 plus benefits.
*Richard Juda was named school attorney. He will be paid $86,000 but receives no health or life insurance.
*Carl Morgan, another attorney, was retained to handle litigation related to the former Bethlehem Steel property and ongoing contract negotiations. His pay rate is $150 an hour.
*William Kukoleca, a Lackawanna police officer, was appointed watchman coordinator at the rate of roughly $16.20 an hour. The result of that vote was 5-2, with Sanders and Chudzik voting no.
Because of scheduling conflicts, the School Board will hold this month's regular meeting July 11, instead of the third Wednesday of the month.
