Sharpsburg officials will vote on the millage for 2013 next week.

Council voted to advertise the rate of 6.23 mills for this year.

Councilman Matthew Rudzki said setting the rate for this year was difficult because of the reassessment numbers from Allegheny County. He said the numbers are still changing.

The proposed rate was reduced from 8.5 mills.


Council President Renee Procopio said the Sharpsburg Recreation Committee is still looking for a third member.

Its president, Susan Sundo, resigned earlier this year.

Procopio said the two remaining members would like the position filled. They plan to meet with someone who is interested in the position.


Business owners and residents in Sharpsburg are being warned that they cannot reserve parking spaces. Spaces are open to the public.

Officials also noted that spots for people with disabilities are not reserved for specific people and can be used by anyone with the proper parking tag.


Sharpsburg officials are looking for a business representative for the Allegheny River Towns and Enterprise Zone.
