Carroll Township Board of Supervisors held its monthly meeting February 5 and announced that Chief of Police Paul Brand has been selected to receive a ‘Distinguished Citizen Award’ by the Boy Scouts of America Laurel Highlands Council.

Chief Brand, who is well-respected in his community, was unanimously voted to receive the award to be given at the annual awards dinner on March 4 at 7:30 pm at the Monongahela Valley Hospital Anthony L. Lombardi Education and Conference Center. The awards dinner and fundraiser is open to the public.

Chief Brand regularly supports the Scouts and attends the yearly event. The honor is well-deserved, according to Brand’s many colleagues and friends. Carroll Township Solicitor Herman Bigi, referring to his many encounters with officers throughout his career, described Chief Brand as “one of the best chiefs of police I’ve ever come across,” and “an exceptional police officer.”

Also at the meeting, the Board approved the hiring of part-time police officer Jeffrey Toth, effective February 5.

Additionally, the township will be advertising requests for proposals for the 2019 paving projects to include Hazelkirk, Orchard, and Greenridge. These larger paving projects must be completed by an outside company due to the scale of the projects, according to the supervisors.
