On May 8 at 7 p.m., the Board of Supervisors held their regular meeting to discuss multiple topics and to recognize EMS Week.

Presentation of a proclamation by the Board was given in recognition of EMS Week. The EMS director, Nora Helfrich, and EMS supervisor, John Bower, from the Tri-Community South EMS, spoke and educated those in attendance about several life-saving techniques.

Following the EMS presentation, the Board went into covering the meeting topics:

A nuisance hearing will be scheduled for June 12 at 6:15 p.m. regarding the property located at 3114 Southern Dr., South Park, PA. Three properties for which nuisance hearings have already been held were declared to be public nuisances. The two properties on Grove Rd. and the property on Sebolt Rd. were all declared as public nuisances.

The Board gave preliminary and final approval to several requests that were submitted by businesses owners and landowners in the area, which allows them to move forward with projects that required Township approval.

Several non-exclusive license agreements were approved by the Board, which allows for encroachment onto sewer or utilities easements.

The Board approved the capital additions that the Pleasant Hills Authority wishes to make, which are associated with the sewage treatment plant. Those plans include replacing the existing belt filter press with a new screw press, replacing the final clarifier mechanism, and repurposing the existing generator building as an administration building.

Resolution No. 5-17, which supports the use of Act 89 funding to be used for the Mon Fayette Expressway, was approved.

The invoice from R&B Contracting and Excavation, in the amount of $16,956, for the project identified as the Cardox Road Stormwater Improvements, was approved by the Township. The remaining balance of $23,400, will be paid with grant funding.

The bids received by SHACOG on March 27 for the purchase of spring commodities, through its cooperative purchasing program, were approved and authorized for the purchase of said commodities.

A reimbursement of expenses was approved for David J. Buchewicz’s attendance to the 2017 PSATS Conference. The reimbursement was in the amount of $1,191.38.
Resolution No. 6-17, includes South Park in the Allegheny County Community Development Block Grant and Home Programs for three years, up to 2020.

In final comments, Walter Sackinsky mentioned the Township had a successful Earth Day. There was such a turnout, that in years to come, he said they will have to find a better way to direct all the traffic.
