Upcoming Road Construction:
Folino Construction, under contract with PENNDOT, will be repaving Beulah Road between the Tri-Boro Expressway in Turtle Creek to Frankstown Road in Penn Hills. Work is scheduled to begin July 13th. Construction will consist of doing base repair to both the roadway and shoulders, minor drainage improvements, then they will proceed with milling and paving. Along with this work, there will be new line painting, guide rail improvements, and other miscellaneous upgrades. PENNDOT'S Traffic Control Plan restricts the contractor from performing work between the hours of 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM Work will be controlled with single lane traffic by flaggers and off-duty police.
Memo from the Code Enforcement Officer:
With the start of summer a quick message reminding all residents that to stay in compliance with Borough codes and ordinances the following hot topics are getting attention:
Swimming Pools, including temporary, seasonal or of the inflatable type require a permit prior to being installed or used. Seek approval prior to installing a pool regardless of the design to avoid delays in use or fines for operating without a permit. When in doubt contact the Borough office to get clarification.
Motor Vehicles are considered inoperable without current or valid inspection or registration and are in violation of the property maintenance code if parked, kept or stored on any premises within the Borough unless provided for in other regulations. The same holds true for vehicles that are in major disrepair. All major overhauls and body work has to be done inside of a structure designed and approved for that type of work.
Weeds and Grasses need to be maintained to a height of six inches or less.
Garbage and Rubbish – items intended to be discarded through the weekly refuse hauler cannot be placed at the curb until the evening prior to the scheduled pickup day unless previous approval from the Borough Manager is obtained.
Occupancy Inspections, prior to finalizing a Real Estate transaction, or renting / leasing a housing unit within the Borough an occupancy inspection is required prior to establishing residence. Contact the Borough office to obtain the Occupancy Application and start the process to avoid any delays.
With any luck the summer will remain dry and warm providing us all with quality time to spend with family and friends to enjoy our wonderful community. If you have any questions regarding these or any other local ordinances please feel free to get in touch with the Borough staff at 412-241-7113 or my office directly at 412-372-3831.
