A new www.pleasanthillspa.com website is running.
“But it is still being tweaked,” borough Councilman Gregory Smith told his colleagues on Monday.
Data Blueprints LLC designed the website. It has front-page notices such as one about summer job applications, as well as various links.
One is to a history dating the earliest settlement in the borough to 1774. Another is about Community Day (Aug. 10).
There are links to Baldwin EMS and the borough's volunteer fire department, whose annual fund drive has begun.
“We appreciate the generosity of the community,” assistant Fire Chief Randy Porter said. He reported that the department responded to 30 calls in February.
Baldwin EMS Chief William Plunkett reported an anonymous $5,000 donation to a safe children's program his agency conducts. His crews responded to 113 calls in February, 79 for life-threatening causes, with an average response time of 5.8 minutes.
Smith said the borough arboretum will have bird walks on April 14, 21 and 28 and May 5 and 19, on each occasion beginning at 8 a.m.
Council may hold a brief special meeting prior to its next regularly scheduled session on April 16 at 7 p.m. Solicitor Fred C. Jug Jr. said the meeting may be needed to deal with amendments to the borough zoning ordinance about sandwich board sign regulations, and to rules regarding fences.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
