Municipal News

By Jill Brown

With only about a dozen people present at the April 9 Donora Council meeting on a stormy night, public address was first on the agenda.

One resident said, "We should get a bank in town."

Council responded by saying, "There is a bank that has contacted me. However it's still in the infancy stages."

One resident who just moved to Donora with kids "has to drive to every other town for activities." Also, driving into town, her first impressions are the violations and blighted properties.

Council replied, "Just hang in there. There are ordinances that go around, and if you are ever willing to help out you can."

Another resident, said to her, in regards to activities," This summer, they're going to have the music again at Palmer Park in Donora."

In other news:
• Community Affairs and Municipal Building Council Committee: A one-year renewal of the contract for floor cleaning services of Donora Borough Municipal Building by Bush      Maintenance Services Co. of Greensburg, for May 1, 2015 through April 20, 2016 in the amount of $270 monthly was approved.
• Public Safety Council Committee: A motion was made to approve hiring Dustin William DeVault of Monongahela as a part-time police officer pending verification of his Act        120 certification and a background check.

In Mayor Donald Pavelko's report, he said, "Everyone heard the bad news of Dyno Nobel (the idling of chemical explosives plant in Donora Industrial Park). The good news is that Cactus Wellhead is hiring a significant amount of people. Based in Canonsburg, the starting wage is $20-28 per hour."

The mayor concluded by thanking a number of people involved in PennDOT for listening to him and changing plans to close the bridge on the Monessen side. He thanked many, including PennDOT and State Rep. Ted Harhai.

The mayor also offered for "any person in Donora who is working and having a hearing problem-give me a call. You can get a hearing aid through the Office of Rehabilitation."

The residents who did complain briefly about their trash later said, "they're doing a good job." Joe Eori of Big's Sanitation was present to answer any questions or hear complaints.
