Smith The Pittsburgh Press Fired Baldwin Borough Patrol--man George Galovich will learn next week whether he can return to work for the department or consider finding another job. Baldwin Civil Service Commission Chairman Robert McFall said the commission will meet Tuesday evening to announce its decision on Galovich's appeal of his dismissal. Galovich said Monday he's hopeful he'll be reinstated and that he plans to report back to work if the commission rules in his favor. "I've had a lot of time to think it over and I talked about it with my parents. I know it's going to be rough, because there's probably some on the department who don't like me, but if I don't go back, it looks like I'm a coward," Galovich said. The six-year police veteran said he is unsure of his plans if the commission upholds the dismissal. - "There's a couple of avenues we could pursue, but I imagine we'll file an appeal of some kind," he said. Galovich was fired April 18 by Baldwin Council on charges that he gave false and misleading information last year in a borough investigation of Police Chief Aldo Gaburri. Council additionally suspended him without pay for 60 days on a separate charge of failing to follow up on a complaint about stolen checks. Galovich, represented by attorneys Joel Sansone and Melvin Vatz, argued that the charges were without merit and were filed in retaliation for Galovich's personal involvement in the investigation of Gaburri and the 1980 disappearance of Michael Rosenblum of Shadyside. Among the statements that borough officials claim were false and misleading were those made by Galovich in depositions to Borough Solicitor John Luke that it was "a widely known fact in the police department that you could bet a number at the Italian Club." He was referring to the Italian-American Club on Spangler Road. Six Baldwin officers testified that they heard rumors or were suspicious that gambling occurred at the club, but none of them, including Galovich, provided any evidence of an illegal numbers operation there. Galovich denied giving any false information to Luke, but admitted he made a mistake when he initially said he did not know how a former Baldwin police dispatcher returned from Massachusetts to appear at a borough council meeting last year. He said he quickly corrected him- - self by telling Luke he picked up the woman at Greater Pittsburgh International Airport. Galovich's hearing, which began June 8 and concluded June 22, covered five nights of testimony from fellow police officers and past and current borough officials. The commission has 45 days, or until Aug. 6, to make its decision. Galovich was the anonymous author of two letters to Maurice Ro-. senblum, the father of the missing man, advising him that the former dispatcher, Jean Haslett, could tell him about an alleged cover-up concerning Michael Rosenblum's disappearance. Acting on the tip from Galovich, the elder Rosenblum accused Gaburri of interfering with the investigation into his son's disappearance, accusations that eventually led to Gaburri's dismissal last October. The Civil Service Commission found no basis for the charges and reinstated Gaburri on Dec. 30 after a lengthy trial. Galovich said Gaburri's retirement announcement did not affect ' his plans to return to the police department AT YOUR LIBRARY 2 Bethel Park The Thursday Morning Book Club wants prospective members to read John Updike's new novel, "S," and Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic, 'The Scarlett Letter." - The group will discuss these books when it resume meetings in September.
