Municipal News

Monessen City Council has adopted several new ordinances, according to Mayor Matt Shorraw. Among those are a new Downtown Parking Ordinance, and a new Fireworks Ordinance.

The Downtown Parking Ordinance abolishing Downtown Parking Meters, and establishes free 2-hour parking zones, throughout the Downtown, during Business Hours (8am-5pm); confirms leased-parking, and no parking zones; and establishes fines for parking violations.

The new Fireworks Ordinance is based on Pennsylvania's state regulations. Those wishing to shoot fireworks in the City must acquire a permit from the city, be bonded (for certain types of fireworks), and cannot shoot them off on public streets or sidewalks, or within 150 feet of any structure. Violators can face a fine of $100 for each infraction.

In other recent business, the City of Monessen has updated its fire and burning ordinances, is progressing in the planning phase of constructing a DEP-Mandated stormwater separation tank, with the Mon Valley Sewage Authority, and acquired new public works equipment. It was also noted that the City is under-budget (year to date) for legal fees, will be seeing roughly $64,000 in savings from insurance costs, and collected more revenue than expected in unpaid garbage fees, so far for the year. The City has also hired a new, certified Code Enforcement Officer, and a new Payroll Clerk. The City is under-budget and is operating without a Tax Anticipation Note.
