Municipal News

By Jill Runfola

The Belle Vernon Borough began their monthly council meeting on February 19, 2019 by stating the need to fill certain positions. Also, with the Spring and Summer approaching, the Belle Vernon recreation board was busy scheduling activities for the Mon Valley area.

School crossing guard Nicole Bonacci will be resigning, and the district will need to fill the position. Cliff Gorski, Finance Committee, made a motion to advertise the opening that starts with the 2019-20 school year. In addition, council expressed the need to advertise for an auditor and said the Municipal Audit and Finance Report is due by April 1. The Mayor, Gerald Jackson added that it should be okay as long as they get the report completed in a timely manner.

Mr. Rich Saxberg, Chief Council and V.P. Chairman, discussed obtaining 22 more tons of salt and 5 tons of patch for Belle Vernon area roads. He commented, “Water is coming out of places it has never come out of before, and we’re trying to keep it off the roads.” He also noted that we are about average for where we should be for salt this year and with the warmer weather there will be the need to patch roads.

In other business, Rachel Wilson, BV Recreation Board Borough President, reported on some of the exciting events in store for the area. The festivities will start with an Annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 13. Other activities include a Fishing Tournament on June 15, and a ‘Bike Run’ in early July. A canoe event will be featured on July 13, and the second Tuesday in July is the city’s Kennywood Day.
