Borough Government

All Operations Officially Moved to New Municipal Building

After more than 100 years of operating at the corner of Brownsville Road and Marylea Avenue, Brentwood Borough has relocated its offices. This move to an entirely new municipal building at a site that previously housed a dilapidated structure follows a decade long planning process and 18 months of construction. Staff began to transition to this new facility in December, and the lobby was officially opened to visitors on January 4, 2021. Please take note that, if you are dropping off or mailing documents to Brentwood Borough, our new address is 3735 Brownsville Road.

Borough Encourages Interested Residents to Attend Meetings Remotely During Surge

Since the loosening of coronavirus-related restrictions in June, the Borough has permitted the general public to attend its voting meetings while simultaneously maintaining a remote participation option. With cases increasing rapidly as our region enters the coldest portion of the calendar, Brentwood is adhering to the Allegheny County Health Department's advisory and strongly recommending that individuals connect through the Microsoft Teams app. For the November 23rd meeting, residents may participate by dialing 570-340-0660 and entering the conference identification number of 602-851-715. At present, although the Borough is discouraging residents from attending in person, the municipal building will remain open to guests during these meetings.

Council to Hold Annual Budget Workshops

Following a review of proposed revenues and expenditures for the General Fund and Capital Improvement Fund, Council will hold its second and final 2021 budgetary planning workshop on November 9th. The meeting will take place at 5PM at the Brentwood Municipal Building. Council will review drafts of the Sanitary Sewer Fund, Park Fund, and Liquid Fuels Fund budget. The Gateway Engineers will also provide a presentation in conjunction with pending amendments to the Ten-Year Capital Improvement Plan, and representatives of Public Financial Management will provide an update on the possible sale of the sanitary sewer system.
