At the Belle Vernon Borough Council Meeting on April 13, 2015, with only 4 or 5 residents present, some important decisions were made. From concerns, reports, and changes in appointed persons, Belle Vernon held a worthwhile council meeting.

A resident with a public complaint who lives on Market St. in the borough had a lot of issues on his property; he went to magistrate with a list about these issues last week. Having received citations, such as one for his yellow 6-wheeler which he had to cover, he felt they were "selectively targeting him." A council member agreed to go to the magistrate's office about the matter the next day.

Regarding Parks and Recreation, council member Shaun DeLaini said, "The Easter Egg Hunt was successful. I would like to thank everyone who was there. It was a great turnout." He went on to thank all the businesses for their contributions and support.

Concerning background checks, a new law which goes into effect in July is calling for every member of the fire department to have one. This is necessary, since they come in contact with minors.

With the report of appointed persons, Council voted to remove Solicitor Galpher and will send a letter. They are to advertise for a new borough solicitor as well as a new borough engineer.

In Public Safety, Rich Saxberg reported on the much publicized alligator sighting in the Mon River in Belle Vernon, which the Coast Guard will again come out to assess. The alligator could be a problem if it becomes dangerous in the area.

In other business, Belle Vernon Kennywood Day is to be held on Tuesday, July 14. Tickets will be $17 and $27. Transportation there by bus is $8.
