Pair of Free Movies to be Screened in June

Make your summer nights memorable. Join us on back-to-back Saturday evenings to experience the opening stanza to our summer movie series. First, on June 8th, witness a baseball-themed classic from the heart of the diamond. "The Sandlot" tells the coming-of-age story of Scotty Smalls as he learns about friendship, love, and America's pastime. In the 25 years since its initial release, the tale has become a cult favorite. On June 15th, a recent release comes to Brentwood. "Ralph Breaks the Internet" is the second installment in the misadventures of a gentle giant from the world of the video arcade. The show begins at dusk on Field #3 in our park. 

Borough Schedules Exam for Police Officer Candidates; Council Approves Waiver of Fees

The dedicated service of the Brentwood Borough Police Department has helped to preserve the high quality-of-life that our residents demand. Our municipality is preparing to add one more community-oriented individual to our squad. Through June 13th at 4PM, the Borough will accept applications from those who are committed to combating crime and helping others in times of need. Candidates for the position of entry level police officer must be 21 years of age, possess a high school diploma or equivalent, hold a valid driver's license, and have either earned Act 120 certification or be actively enrolled in a state-sanctioned police academy. Individuals who submit a completed application will be invited to participate in a physical agility and written knowledge test at the Allegheny County Police Academy on June 25th. In recognition of the sacrifices that candidates make to train for these positions, Brentwood Borough Council has elected to waive all testing fees.

Community Support Needed to Beautify Park Tree Canopy

 

Through the help of an award from the state-sponsored Treevitalize initiative, Brentwood Park is set to become more verdant. A total of 40 trees will be planted on the site at minimal cost to the Borough. The selected species include a combination of those that will grow large and create a shady reprieve from the summer heat and those that will serve a more decorative function by vividly blossoming each spring season. Residents are requested to roll up their sleeves and grab a shovel to on Saturday, May 11th at 7:30AM, as this volunteer-driven effort becomes a reality. Hard work will be rewarded with refreshments!
