Revisions for office building in Pleasant Hills get OK'd

Plans to construct a two-story office building on East Bruceton Road in Pleasant Hills will move forward.

Council on Feb. 18 unanimously agreed to accept revisions for development of land on East Bruceton Road across from the Pleasant Hills Apartments. Solicitor Fred Jug said council approval is needed to satisfy state Department of Environmental Protection sewage and pollution control requirements.

• Council also unanimously approved reducing two construction bonds for the Bowser Automotive renovation project. Since dirt moving has been completed, council eliminated a $100,250 bond for the grading permit since and reduced the bond for the Nissan facility project from $605,801 to $246,958.

• Waste Management, the borough's garbage collector, will no longer pick up televisions because of a state law that took effect in January that changes the way some items are recycled. Guardian Self-Storage on Lebanon Church Road in West Mifflin will accept televisions, with the exception of larger models, said Debbie Englert, borough manager.

• The county has denied a Community Infrastructure and Tourism Fund grant to renovate borough tennis courts, said Ned Mitrovich, borough engineer. Officials will reapply for the next round of funding.
