“If good things come to those who wait, then the Brentwood Pool Renovations are going to be AMAZING!!”
If you have been in Brentwood Park recently you likely noticed a few items that are missing from the pool area. Phase I of the Pool Renovation Project commenced in June and saw the removal of the outdated bathhouse and the dilapidated Civic Center deck. The final result will create a scenic view of Herb Troy Field and a new sunbathing area for pool guests.
Phase II of this long-anticipated project is scheduled to begin in September 2019. This marks a slight delay from original projections. For reasons that are outside the Borough's control, the paperwork components of the Borough's $797,600 grant through the Land & Water Conservation Fund were processed somewhat later than anticipated. The Borough was unable to award a contract without receiving the green light from the federal government,or else it would put this critical funding in jeopardy. It is safe to say that, without the help of this funding source, as well as Allegheny County Community Infrastructure & Tourism Fund awards in the amount of $275,000, this much needed $3 million project would not have been able to occur.
On August 26, 2019, the Borough formally awarded a contract to low bidder Yarborough Construction. Although this project is officially deemed to involve a renovation of the pool, due to its broad scope, Borough residents are nearly getting an entirely new facility. The project will see the installation of state-of-the-art changing rooms, a zero depth entry zone, and a super waterslide. Borough officials are hoping for a mild winter and dry spring to provide good conditions for the contractors to complete this project in time for the 2020 pool season
Brentwood School District is hosting a job fair on August 7th from 12PM to 3PM in the high school library. Candidates are asked to bring a resume and two forms of identification. All state-mandated clearances must be attained before the formal date of hire. Substitute teaching positions are available, as well as full-time and part-time positions in paraprofessional, nursing, and clerical jobs. For more information, see the attached flyer.
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.
At a highly productive agenda meeting, Borough Council was able to address the entirety of its pending action items for the month of June. Consequently, the body will not convene on June 24th. The board will hold its next meeting on July 15th.
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.
