White Oak council applies for grant to improve athletic association

Tuesday, April 22, 2014, 12:26 a.m.
 

For the second time in 13 months White Oak council is applying for a $500,000 state grant for White Oak Athletic Association improvements.

“We are applying for the official paperwork for the application,” Mayor Ina Jean Marton said after a vote on Monday for a renewed bid for Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program funds.

Council voted in March 2013 to match the grant with $300,000 from the borough capital projects budget and a $200,000 certificate of deposit, but never followed through with an application.

“We had put it on hold for a while,” councilman Ron Massung said on Monday.

Council president Carrie Noll said the money will be budgeted through the borough's general fund. The borough plans a $1.14 million community center on the athletic association grounds along McKee Road.

Council took several actions focusing on the Heritage Hill Pool. Noll said admission charges will be unchanged, at $45 for a season pass and $5 for daily admission for borough residents and $10 daily admission for non-residents.

Councilman Kenneth Robb said children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Council approved purchase of an automatic chemical dispenser from B & R Pools at a cost not to exceed $1,700 and Twin Oaks to continue through 2016 as concession stand operator at $100 a month.

It authorized advertising ordinances to regulate the adoption of feral cats and pawn shops, which Noll said could include jewelry stores.

It exercised a third option year for road salt from Cargill through the South Hills Area Council of Governments purchasing alliance and approved rental of a photo booth from II None Productions for the borough's Aug. 2 community day.

It approved purchase from Harris School Solutions of Bethel Park of real estate tax license software for two users at an initial cost of no more than $4,550 and annual rental for approximately $1,000.

Paul Yester was named to finish the late Wayne Weinstein's term on the building code appeal board and Barbara Kostley was given a plaque for her 28 years of service on White Oak Recreation Board.
