Sharpsburg officials continue to move closer to developing an ordinance relating to trees in the borough.

With regulations in place, the borough would be able to receive trees through the TreeVitalize program from the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.

Councilman Lou DeLuca said representatives from the borough already have taken tree tender classes needed for the program. He said efforts are under way to beautify the community.

“We're attempting to green Sharpsburg,” DeLuca said.

As they finalize the ordinance, officials plan to reach out to Aspinwall's Shade Tree Commission for information about how that borough manages trees.

Hoffman Kennels

Sharpsburg renewed its contract with Hoffman Kennels for animal control services for $200 per month.

The contract includes answering and responding to calls and patrolling streets for at least three days per week.
