Summer Sizzler Brings Food, Libations, & Fun

 

Residents should be "mindful" that, due to the heavy turnout at recent events, a second South Hills brewery will be making an appearance at our upcoming street fair. At our July 27th "Summer Sizzler," guests can sample balanced, refreshing pours Bethel Park's Spoonwood Brewing and Castle Shannon's Mindful Brewing. Complement your beverage with a gourmet sausage from Hot Dawgz or a hearty ramen bowl from Miso Hungry. Don't forget dessert! The smell of goey cinnamon rolls from Hot Bunz will waft through the air, while the ice cream from Sugar & Spice will leave you "screaming" for more. The night will also feature live music, games-of-chance, and another opportunity for patrons to test their ax throwing skills. Join us on Brownsville Road opposite the municipal building from 6PM to 10PM as a scorching summer day transitions to a mild evening. 

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.
