JOHNSTOWN (AP) — The former head of a western Pennsylvania city’s redevelopment authority has been indicted for allegedly violating federal extortion and bribery laws.

The Department of Justice said in a Tuesday release that Ronald Repak, 62, of Johnstown, allegedly used his influence to obtain a new roof for his home, work that benefited his son’s business, and Pittsburgh Steelers tickets.

Repak was fired in February 2013 for allegedly accepting $130,000 in consulting fees from an agency that was working with the redevelopment authority. Repak had been the agency’s executive director for 30 years.

A woman who answered a phone listed in Repak’s name declined to comment.
