The final step of painting the water tower in Sharpsburg will cost about $6,000.

Crews will paint “Sharpsburg” on both sides of the tower in white lettering against the blue tower. The colors are the colors of the former Sharpsburg High School.

The tower also was cleaned earlier this year.

Library fundraiser

A fundraiser for the Sharpsburg Community Library has been rescheduled for Sept. 22 at LeMont on Pittsburgh's Mt. Washington.

The event had been scheduled for next month, but more time was needed for planning. The event will be from 1 to 5 p.m.

Other fundraisers for the library, which is preparing for an expansion, are planned for later in the year.

Toy bash

Sharpsburg will make a $100 donation to the Seneca Area Emergency Services' inaugural toy bash.

The event is scheduled for later this year.

Baseball donation

The Sharpsburg Baseball Association will receive $750 from the borough.

Association officials plan to use the money to purchase a scoreboard.

Street sweeping

Street sweeping in the borough is back on track.

Councilman Lou DeLuca said some streets were not swept after a problem with the street sweeper.

Those repairs have been made.

Street sweeping takes place the first and third Mondays and Wednesdays of each month through Nov. 20.
