  • 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.

New Agenda Software Increases Access to Information for Elected Officials & Public

 

Brentwood is committed to maintaining transparency in governmental operations. With this critical value in mind, the Borough is seeking to upgrade the process by which public meeting agendas are compiled and pertinent associated information is disseminated. Through the cloud-based NovusAGENDA software, residents can easily review scheduled motions, departmental reports, draft resolutions and ordinances, and proposed contracts and work authorizations. Access to this program is currently available at no cost to the Borough as part of a three month trial offer. To test drive this exciting new platform, select “Council Mtg. Agendas” from the main menu.  

 

 
Borough Responds to Delinquent Property Tax Concerns

 

The Borough of Brentwood has received a number of inquiries pertaining to the receipt of delinquent property tax notifications. These notices are generated under contract by Jordan Tax Service.   At the close of each tax year, Fay Boland, the elected tax collector, disseminates the delinquency list to this company. Once a taxpayer is in arrears, Ms. Boland can no longer accept payment. If a property owner does not satisfy the tax bill by June 30th of the tax year, late penalties will be automatically assessed.

 

Several property owners have asserted that nonpayment was due a billing error by Ms. Boland. However, the Borough has reviewed the appropriate distribution lists and has confirmed that school and municipal property tax invoices were generated concurrently. Please note that Ordinance 2014-1233, which set the 2015 property tax rate, includes the following language: “failure to receive notice shall not relieve any taxpayer from any taxes imposed by the Borough.” Additionally note that Borough and Jordan Tax Service employees are not authorized to absolve the principal or penalties of any past due tax bill. Such amounts can only be waved through a motion of Borough Council. Should an individual appeal to Council for relief, the taxpayer’s name, address, and delinquent total will be revealed in a publically accessible meeting. Traditionally, Council has voted against such requests except under extreme extenuating circumstances. All appeals must be made in writing to Borough Council care of Borough Manager George Zboyovsky.
