Borough Government

Interactive Budgetary Application Now Available

In order to provide our residents with the high quality services that they have come to expect, it is necessary for our municipality to carefully and efficiently allocate scarce resources. Brentwood Borough recognizes that the dollars that are utilized to keep our neighborhoods safe and attractive come from the public, and, in order to demonstrate that we are faithful stewards of these funds, our community has long disseminated a highly detailed budget. Because of the amount of pertinent information that is included in this annually-generated document, our Borough is a multi-year recipient of the Government Finance Officers Association's Distinguished Budget Award. However, Brentwood recognizes that, from a citizen's perspective, reviewing a more than 700 page packet of data can be a daunting challenge. Consequently, the Borough has partnered with software developer ClearGov to produce a simple-to-navigate, electronic version of our budget booklet. As we place the finishing touches on this tool, we encourage you to test drive the application here.

Residents Invited to Fill Planning Commission Vacancy

Brentwood Borough is still seeking a civic-minded individual to serve on its Planning Commission. This body convenes approximately four to six times per year to provide crucial citizen oversight of development activities within our community. Interested individuals should provide a brief letter of interest to epeccon @ brentwoodboro.com.

All Operations Officially Moved to New Municipal Building

After more than 100 years of operating at the corner of Brownsville Road and Marylea Avenue, Brentwood Borough has relocated its offices. This move to an entirely new municipal building at a site that previously housed a dilapidated structure follows a decade long planning process and 18 months of construction. Staff began to transition to this new facility in December, and the lobby was officially opened to visitors on January 4, 2021. Please take note that, if you are dropping off or mailing documents to Brentwood Borough, our new address is 3735 Brownsville Road.
