The Robinson Board of Commissioners approved the hiring of the Oakmont-based Bruce E. Dice & Associates as the township's new soliciting firm.
The measure was passed in a 5-to-0 vote Monday.
In January, commissioners fired longtime Robinson solicitor Goldberg, Kamin & Garvin, after officials took issue with its handling of litigation related to township development projects.
Attorney John Butya had acted as interim solicitor. Dice represents communities including Monroeville and Plum.
Outgoing township manager Aaron Bibro, who will resign from his post in April, said a replacement is expected to be hired for the position in April.
Bibro said the township received 30 applications from prospective municipal administrators. The township will conduct closed-door interviews with five candidates next week before making a final decision at the April public meeting.
Bibro, who has worked in the township since 2009, has been hired as the new manager for Hatfield Township in Montgomery County, PA. His final day of work in Robinson is April 1.
"I'm pretty confident the township will be in good hands moving forward," Bibro said.
