Penn Hills citizens to address sewage billing, code enforcement at Monday council meeting

Friday, Nov. 15, 2013, 3:21 p.m.

Penn Hills residents will address sewer bill collections and the municipality's code enforcement department at the Penn Hills council's Nov. 18 meeting.

Resident Leslie Pandy will voice concerns about more than 700 collection letters sent to Penn Hills residents by Portnoff Law Associates, an eastern Pennsylvania collection agency hired by the municipality.

Attorney Irene McLaughlin will represent the Penn Hills Community Development Corporation's Housing Committee and discuss issues related to the code enforcement department, which has been operating without two staff members, Joseph Probo and Mary Lou Flinn. Both were terminated by municipal officials and accused of violating the municipality's residency requirement for employees. They have filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board and have brought a lawsuit against the municipality.

Other items on the agenda include:

• Council will vote on the 2013-2018 six-year capital improvements plan.

• Awarding a $15,900 contract to Bethel Park-based JB Mechanical Inc., to replace the rooftop HVAC unit at the Penn Hills Senior Service Center on Jefferson Road.

The meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the council chambers at the Penn Hills Municipal Building, located at 12245 Frankstown Road. For more information, call 412-798-2100.
