Notifications Issued for Next Phase of Sidewalk Restoration Program

The Borough's initiative to improve its walkability is about to enter its five year. In 2019, Brentwood will partner with homeowners and a local contractor to eliminate sidewalk defects on Heathmore Avenue, Spangler Avenue, and Elroy Avenue, as well as on portions of Pary Street, Meadowbrook Boulevard, and Kaufmann Avenue. Based upon feedback from prior participants, the Borough will no longer be physically marking the defective slabs but will instead transmit an image of the damaged area with issued enrollment forms. It is anticipated that the Borough will award a vendor contract in March. A copy of the application can be attained here.

Pair of Awarded Contracts Move Borough Building Project Forward

The great eyesore of Brownsville Road will soon be no more. Council formally ratified an agreement with Continental Construction to demolish the dilapidated Snee Dairy structure. The building will be removed and the site will be backfilled to allow for construction of a new municipal complex to begin in March. Additionally, the Borough selected Dagostino Electronics to design and install the telecommunications, security, and audio-visual systems for this new facility.
