Sharpsburg officials could use an intern this year to work on one of several possible projects.

The borough has an opportunity to apply for an intern from the Local Government Academy, borough secretary Jan Barbus said. The borough would have to pay a portion of that person's salary.

Among the proposed projects is creating a database of problem properties in the borough.

Councilman Lou DeLuca said it would involve “not only the properties that are problem properties but all borough properties on an index so that we can update that index so we can hit an address and that would come up in our computer.”

Barbus said she was unsure of the intern's salary and would gather more information before officials make a decision.

The intern would be available to the borough for two months. When borough officials submit a request, they will have to indicate what work is available.

Honors

Sharpsburg officials plan to honor a marine who was awarded a Silver Star Medal.

Marine Sgt. David M. Gerardi, a Fox Chapel Area graduate, was honored for risking his life to save members of his platoon.

Mayor Richard Panza said the borough wants to wait until Gerardi comes home before recognizing him.

“We're all proud of him and I know the family is,” Panza said.

Next meeting

The next council meeting is scheduled for Feb. 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the borough building on Main Street.
