Murrysville council could act on compressor-station expansion tonight
Murrysville council is slated to take action on site-plan and conditional-use approval requests for Dominion Energy's JB Tonkin Compressor Station on Mamont Road at their meeting tonight.
Council meets at 7 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, with a host of issues on the agenda, including Dominion's request to expand a compressor station, which elicited concerns from some residents about both noise and emission pollution.
Other items on council's agenda include:
• Public hearings on a pump station proposed for 6445 William Penn Highway; on the relocation of Spinola's Bakery to 4403 Old William Penn Highway; and on a major excavation request from Murrysville Medic One related to the ambulance garage at 3202 North Hills Road.
• A potential vote on seismic testing within municipal parks by Cougar Land Services, who are working on behalf of Monroeville drillers Huntley & Huntley.
• A potential vote a resolution opting out of consideration as a location for one of 10 “ancillary casinos” authorized by the General Assembly's Act 42, signed into law in October by Gov. Tom Wolf. The legislation seeks to find sites for 10 new casinos throughout the state. Local governments must pass an “opt-out” resolution by the end of December.
• A potential vote on an ordinance renaming Miracle Field Drive as Ron Coy Way.
The meeting is at 7 p.m. in the Murrysville municipal building at 4100 Sardis Road. Meetings are broadcast live on local access Channel 19 and streamed live on the Murrysville YouTube page .
