A Mt. Pleasant Township resident Bob Whalen of Reservoir Road asked supervisors on Monday the status of the water project on his road and Kecksburg Road.

Supervisor Jack Rutkowski said he has been working closely with state Rep. Mike Reese, who has been trying to obtain money for the project.

“I talk with Mike about this once a week. We are now waiting for regulations to be approved,” Rutkowski said.

Supervisor Frank Puskar added that Reese has been a great help to the township.

“He is so nice to work with, and we appreciate all he does for us,” Puskar said.

Supervisors passed a resolution declaring its intent to follow the schedules and procedures for the disposition of records and adopt the federal Retention of Records Requirements for Commercial Drivers License Records.

Secretary Caprice Mills said the resolution is required to meet new state regulations.

The municipality also entered into a Bridge Inventory and Inspection Reimbursement Activity Agreement with PennDOT.

Supervisors said a new agreement was required since the previous one was now five years old.

Supervisors accepted a Community Development Block Grant of $209,000 for the storm water improvements project for Liberty Street. The grant is subject to the approval of the Westmoreland County Commissioners and the Department of Housing and Urban Development final grant amount to Westmoreland County.

The next recycling date for the municipality is March 6.

Supervisors announced that Westmoreland Cleanways has opened a recycling center at 113 Innovative Lane, Latrobe. The center is open Mondays from noon to 7 p.m., Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Fridays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the second Saturday of each month from 8:30 to noon. The center accepts different hard-to-recycle items including but not limited to tires, electronics, appliances. For more information, call 724-879-4020.
