Port Authority Grants Ksiazek 3.5% Raise

EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio – The board of the Columbiana County Port Authority renewed the employment contract of its manager of administration and finance, Diane L. Ksiazek, granting her a 3.5% pay raise and bringing her annual compensation to $77,232.

The term runs from Aug. 19 until Aug. 18, 2017, when it automatically renews unless she or the board provides at least three month’s notice not to renew.

The raise is in line with raises grated the rest of the port authority staff, Executive Director Penny Traina noted.

She praised Ksiazek’s service, calling her “my right hand” and remarking how well her 30 years in commercial banking prepared her for her role.

Ksiazek served as interim executive director of the port authority from Oct. 1 until early March when Traina was named executive director.
