Council moves forward with Jefferson Hills public works facility plan
Plans to construct a public-works facility in Jefferson Hills are moving forward.
Borough council unanimously voted Monday to authorize McLean Architects to prepare and advertise bid documents for the 2,200-square-foot public-works facility. The project estimation is $3.5 million and will include space for public-works equipment, offices, lunch and locker rooms and storage, as well as a salt-storage shed.
• Borough council also scheduled a public hearing for 6 p.m. May 23 in the municipal building for the proposed ordinance that addresses oil and natural-gas drilling.
Jefferson Hills officials developed the ordinance with the intent to keep drilling away from residential areas but not completely block it. The ordinance addresses noise management and would require applicants seeking conditional use for drilling to complete a traffic impact study.
• Jefferson Hills officials seek a $250,000 grant through the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County's Community Infrastructure and Tourism Fund for the Walton Road sewer upsizing project.
• Borough council approved extending the contract with Cargill Inc. for the purchase of rock salt from July 1 of this year to June 30, 2014.
• Borough council unanimously approved hiring Roseanne L. Moore as a school crossing guard.
