The Carroll Township Board of Supervisors paid tribute to the late Aldo Bartolotta at their monthly meeting Tuesday.

The officials presented an honorary plaque to his family. The supervisors honored Bartolotta, who died Dec. 2, for his many contributions to Carroll Township, Monongahela, and the Valley.

Vice Chairman James Harrison, who grew up next door to Bartolotta, stated his fondness and respect for “an exemplary man, devoted husband and father, tireless worker (who never had a bad day), outstanding supervisor and boss, and generous supporter to the many charities of the valley and surrounding areas.”

Harrison also cited Bartolotta's dedication to the youth of the Mon Valley as part if his legacy that “will never be forgotten.”

Bartolotta's wife, Joan Bartolotta, daughter and son-in-law, Toni and Archie Allridge, and daughter-in-law Camera Bartolotta accepted the plaque, thanking the township and board for recognizing him.

In other business, resident Maya Patch expressed concern for the number of township police officers on duty on a daily basis. Patch suggested the township consider hiring more officers to patrol the 49 miles of roads in the township.

Chairman Thomas Rapp stated the township is a low crime area, and reminded residents that hiring more officers would increase costs – and likely higher taxes.

“When you're talking about hiring police officers, you're talking money,” Rapp said.

Rapp also reassured residents that Carroll Township reciprocates with Monongahela and Donora when extra police officers are needed.

Police Chief Paul Brand said, “We are here 24-hours a day.”

Brand also stated that all police officers are obviously “second to a person's first line of defense” against crime, reminding residents to always be alert to their surroundings, contacting the police when the see something suspicious.
