Carnegie Borough Council adopted two ordinances Monday night that will allow developers to move forward with a proposed GetGo location in the borough.

Council voted unanimously to adopt an ordinance granting a conditional use application by Echo Real Estate, which represents more than 100 Giant Eagle sites, to use two properties on East Main Street for a gas station.

The location includes eight parcels of land between East Main and Lydia streets. The entire area is about 1.5 acres.

The second approved ordinance will allow for the amendment of the borough's zoning ordinance to rezone certain streets surrounding the proposed location from Commercial-2 to Commercial-1. The rezoning will allow the business to operate as a gas station, café and convenience store.

Echo has not yet closed on the properties. GetGo representative Pat Avolio said moving forward with the deal was contingent upon the passage of the two ordinances.

In other business, council voted unanimously to advertise an ordinance naming the Carnegie Volunteer Fire and Rescue Bureau as the official fire company of the borough.

The ordinance has been in the works for two years. It was last advertised in April. It was tabled at the May council meeting and has remained so since. The ordinance is scheduled to be voted on in March.

Council also approved to hire Crystal Baca as a probationary police officer upon completion of physical and psychological exams. Baca would fill out the borough's 13-officer force, replacing officer Timothy Clark, who left last year for a different department.
