Sewer Lateral Inspection Ordinance Implemented

 

In order to abate the problem of stormwater breaching the sanitary sewer system, the Borough of Brentwood now requires that a sewer lateral camera inspection be performed at the time of any property transaction. This regulation is in addition to the mandate that a dye test be performed prior to closing. The applicable closing company or attorney must issue a $50 check to cover the cost of the lateral inspection confirmation report. As a result, the new fee for the sale of a single family home is $200, with a $50 surcharge for each additional unit. Please note that a DVD copy of the inspection video must be submitted to the Building Code Official with the written report. All final determinations of repair requirements shall be made by the Borough.

Residents are invited to dispose of the following items at our collection site at no cost: tires, brush and yard waste, scrap metal, construction materials, electronic goods, outdoor grills, and lawnmowers and small gasoline-powered devices. The recycling firm E-Loop will be on hand to ensure that all personal data is removed from electronic devices. Please note that all fuel and batteries must be removed from gasoline-powered equipment. The event will be held from 10AM to 2PM at the Brentwood Park main entrance.

 
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Scheduled for Dek Hockey Rink

 

Brentwood Borough Brentwood Council will formally open its new Dek Hockey Rink on Saturday, April 26th at noon with a ribbon cutting ceremony and a “First Slap Shot”. This project represents a unique public and private partnership and is the culmination of over four years of planning.Recognizing the need to address the significant recreational challenges in both our community and the surrounding area, Borough officials teamed up with residents and established a task force of local stakeholders to address these issues. In 2008, the Brentwood Park Initiative (BPI) was formed.  Since that time, the BPI and Borough Officials have worked to bring about continued and new efforts to create a positive atmosphere at Brentwood Borough Community Park. In 2008, the Borough of Brentwood received a $30,000 grant from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) to retain a consultant to prepare a Master Site Development Plan for its park and stadium. Two years later, the Borough received notice from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) that it was the recipient of a $438,000 grant to be used towards Phase I of the park improvement. Phase I consisted of the relocation of the existing tennis and basketball courts to the area of the former practice field, the construction of a Regulation Size Deck Hockey Rink, and the construction of two new ball fields.   In 2011, the Borough received news that it was awarded a $200,000 Grant from the Allegheny County Department of Economic Development’s Community Infrastructure & Tourism Fund to supplement state funding. 

 

Brentwood Borough is inviting YOU to be on site to celebrate the opening of the Dek Hockey Rink and to witness our exciting charity hockey tournament. Bring your friends and enjoy the day!
