South Hills Music to install new sound system in Brentwood press box

| Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

The names of the Brentwood Spartans varsity football team will be heard crystal clear next Friday.

Erik Loeffert of South Hills Music will be installing a new sound system in the Brentwood Borough football stadium press box as early as Wednesday.

The old sound system was ripped out with the light towers during construction of the field.

Council decided to upgrade the system moving forward, Councilman Marty Vickless said on Tuesday.

South Hills Music provided the lowest bid, stating that costs would remain between $3,000 and $3,500.

“He was able to adjust to the reality of the area,” Vickless said.

“The others were just basic stadium sound systems.”

Loeffert told council that he expects the equipment to arrive by Tuesday and be installed by Wednesday for testing.

The Brentwood Spartans play their first home game against Serra Catholic on Aug. 30 at 7:30 p.m.

If there is a delay in the delivery of the equipment, Loeffert agreed to install a system from his studio at no cost to the borough, Vickless said.

The project is part of the $8 million park reconstruction project.

Pool hours decrease

The final Brentwood Park Initiative Pool Party scheduled for Saturday was cancelled due to a lifeguard shortage.

The pool also will be closed on Monday, Wednesday and Aug. 30.

Revised hours for Tuesday and Aug. 29 are 3:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. to accommodate lifeguards that are returning to school.

Golf outing

The Brentwood Park Initiative will host its sixth annual golf outing on Sept. 13.

The shotgun start is at 11:00 a.m. at Seven Springs Golf Course. The cost is $100 per golfer (includes dinner), $50 for dinner (non-golfers).

Checks can be made to the BPI, 3903 Clairton Blvd., Pittsburgh, PA 15227.
