  • Sewage Billing: Effective January 2015, Brentwood is terminating its utility billing relationship with Jordan Tax Service. Future statements will be printed under contract by PNC Bank. Payments will be accepted through a mailing lockbox or via a convenient electronic system hosted on the Borough website. All customer service functions will become internal functions.

     

    Roadway Projects: Per the approved five-year street improvement plan, sections of Pyramid, Glendale, and Bellecrest Avenues have been repaired. The Borough also contracted with the City of Pittsburgh to resurface the portion of Churchview Avenue that abuts both municipalities.  In 2015, this comprehensive project will continue, as parts of Dauphin Street will be entirely reconstructed, while a large segment of Greenlee Road will be repaved.

     

    Zoning Ordinance: The entirely overhauled zoning code is available for view here. It is designed to preserve the community's current aesthetics while concurrently increasing opportunities for businesses.  To further spur development and to improve transit connections, a potential zoning overlay district for the Route 51 corridor is being assessed.

     

    Recreational Programming: Brentwood Borough is pleased to offer an array of interesting and exciting programs for both children and adults. Click here for more information!

Sidewalk Evaluations in Progress

 

At its April meeting, Brentwood Borough Council approved a policy that will provide financial assistance to residents to abate the costs of sidewalk maintenance. The new Shared Cost Sidewalk Restoration Program strategically invests Borough funds to ensure that our municipality lives up to its reputation as a walking community. For fiscal year 2015, the Borough has allocated $25,000 to improve privately owned sidewalks that are adjacent to public roadways.  Under the terms of the program, Brentwood will hire a single contractor to perform sidewalk repairs in bulk; the Borough will pick up the tab for one-half of the restoration costs, while the owner of the noncompliant sidewalk will be responsible only for the remaining 50% of the invoice. Over each of the next five years, the Department of Code Enforcement will fully evaluate sidewalk conditions in a specificed section of the Borough. Staff will note and photograph all major defects, including fractures, severe offsets, gaps between slabs, and pitting over the majority of a slab's surface. Owners of noncompliant sections will be mailed notices that outline repair options. Inspections have already begun, with those sidewalks adjacent to the southbound lanes of Brownsville Road receiving initial evlatuions.

 

Applications for the shared cost program will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.  Property owners who are presently delinquent on taxes, sewage, or any other Borough fee are not eligible for the program.  For more information, or to find out when the sidewalks on your street will be targeted for repairs, please click here.

 
Bullying Seminar a Resounding Success

 

Brentwood Borough recognizes that youth bullying is not simply an internal educational problem.  Rather, it is a societal ill that can impact students long after the final bell of the school day rings.  Brentwood has enacted a municipal ordinance that is designed specifically to combat this abusive and harrassing behavior. However, the Borough recognizes that it cannot simply legislate change.  Consequently, officials have partnered with the Brentwood School district to raise awareness of this critical issue.  On May 14th, both organizations jointly sponsored an appearance by former professional wrestler Marc Mero.  A powerful man with a powerful message, Mr. Mero gave a deeply personal presentation to students in grades six through eleven.  His lecture was designed not only to convey information to perpetrators on the effects of their actions but also to encourage victims to reach out for assistance.  For more information, the website of Marc's organization.
