Upon taking office in January 2008, Mayor Kepics outlined his initial objectives.  Having served on Monongahela City Council for 10 years, these priorities were produced in a very timely manner.  These objectives are currently being addressed, and they are to:

  • facilitate the establishment of new businesses in the City
  • produce ordinances governing taxpayer properties so that residents may improve their properties via additional buildings and/or structures
  • engage the Monongahela Police Force as it wages its war on drugs in the community
  • commit to an “open door policy” with the residents of Monongahela
  • begin working on the establishment of a youth center for children in the area


As of the date of this writing, Mayor Kepics has also accomplished the following:

·         Established “foot patrol” duty within the Police force

·         Established an open door policy with the Police Chief so that residents may lodge complaints directly to the police

·         Founded a monthly “Beautification Award” within the City to reward City residents for outstanding upkeep to their properties.

·         Engaged and encouraged construction companies to purchase and redevelop condemned buildings within the City limits

·         Hosted an annual Fishing Contest for children

·         Initiated ongoing work sessions within the Monongahela Fire Department to address Governmental Standards
