The South Park Board of Supervisors held their regular meeting on April 10, at 7 p.m. to discuss the following:

The Board granted preliminary and final approval to the minor land development, Cardox Commons, to be located at the intersection of Cardox Rd. and Brownsville Rd. As part of the development company’s agreement with South Park, they will have to adhere to several conditions made by South Park Township, prior to construction of the development.

South Park’s high school stadium/recreation complex will undergo some renovations. The Board of Supervisors ratified two agreements with South Park School District, regarding this project. One agreement was a Land Development agreement and the other was a stormwater maintenance agreement.

South Park Township is declaring April 10-14 as Local Government Week.

Two more individuals were hired for part-time employment for the Township’s 2017 Recreation Program.

The status of a library board member was changed. Donna Tressler is now on the Library Board of Trustees, with a term to expire on the first Monday of 2019.

The Board authorized the preparation and advertisement of an ordinance that outlines the debt service related to upgrades being made to the Pleasant Hills Treatment Facility.

Approval of a letter of understanding was made between the Township of South Park and Environmental Coordination Services and Recycling (ECS&R) for ECS&R to hold a household hazardous waste collection event on Saturday, June 17.

The following four training requests were approved:

Chief Dennis McDonough and Sgt. David Starzynski will attend a TAC officer training session on April 25 in Monroeville, at no cost to the Township.
Officer William Stewart will attend “Basic Alert Active Shooter Training” on May 8-9 in Baldwin at a cost of $12.

Officer Brian Rucienski will attend the “Firearms Instructor” training, on May 15-19 at the Pennsylvania State Police Training Center, at a cost of $30.
The Township Manager, Karen Fosbaugh, and Township administrative assistants, Adam Mark and Chris Satter, attended the 2017 Spring Educational Conference on April 7 at Seven Springs at a total cost of $525.

As for some final comments, Chief McDonough said that there have been some thefts in the area. In particular, there were thefts from a number of unlocked vehicles. The chief advised to make sure cars are locked once parked. He also said that two suspects involved in a robbery were caught and are currently in the Allegheny County Jail.

In spite of these recent thefts, the police chief also made known that South Park Township is number 10 on safewise.com, which reports the 100 safest communities. The Township received a certificate that awards South Park for this accomplishment.

Walter Sacinsky added that the recent Easter Bunny event went well and there was a good turnout. He said that the attendance to the event seems to grow each year. He also mentioned that everyone who attended the creek clean-up worked hard and did a great job.
