Carnegie Borough Council met Monday night in a special session to discuss the adoption of the Carnegie Borough-ALCOSAN feasibility study.

All municipalities must adopt a sewer plan to comply with state mandates regarding sanitary issues. The feasibility study was presented by a representative of KLH Engineers, and the borough voted unanimously to allow KLH to submit the study to the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Skatepark update

Council heard an update on the progress of Pitcher Park Memorial Skatepark from Mary Pitcher. Construction is slated to begin next month.

Pitcher said the Ken & Carol Schultz Foundation, an Arizona nonprofit run by Bridgeville native Ken Schultz, agreed to donate another $40,000 toward fencing and lighting for the park.

The foundation already has funded 85 percent of the $600,000 park. The remaining has been raised by the Pitcher Park Foundation.

The last official piece of business the borough has with the park is to lease the piece of park property to the foundation, which council will decide upon at its next voting meeting Aug. 12. Once the terms of the lease expire, the property goes back to the borough.

Park signage

Council also discussed putting signs in the park, dictating the tennis courts and baseball fields be used only for those sports.

There was concern by some council members about individuals playing cricket on the fields. While the borough can dictate what sports can be played on fields designated to specific sports — the little league fields, the tennis courts — the all-purpose field can have no such designation, it was decided.

“An all-purpose field is an all-purpose field,” council president Rick D'Loss said.

Other signage discussed included signs prohibiting pets and tobacco use in the children's park.
