Inspired by a growing trend in Western Pennsylvania, North Versailles Twp. commissioners agreed to participate in the Military Banner Tribute Program.

Dravosburg, East Pittsburgh, McKeesport and Port Vue also have participated in the troop banners program.

By Richard Finch Jr. | Posted in: North Versailles Twp. News

North Versailles Twp. commissioners have unanimously approved a new stormwater management ordinance.

Township solicitor Greg Evashavik said the ordinance is primarily intended to regulate new development and new construction and is mandated by the Pennsylvania Storm Water Management Act.

The law requires each county to prepare and adopt a watershed stormwater management plan for each watershed located in the county, as designated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

“There was a model ordinance prepared and recommended by the county,” Evashavik said. “I made some minor changes to the rule for the township.”

NV Twp. Commissioners Envision Park on Donated Land

October 21, 2018 |

By Richard Finch Jr. | Posted in: North Versailles Twp. News

Build it, and people will come --- at least that's the hope of Sam Juliano, vice president of the North Versailles Twp. commissioners. He wants to see about 90 acres of undeveloped land in the township's Green Valley section turned into a multi-purpose park.

At their October meeting, commissioners voted to enter into an agreement with TARQUINCoRE, LLC of Pittsburgh, which represents the property's owners, to accept the donation of nearly 90 acres of land currently owned by a real estate trust.

Commissioners George Beswick and Daryl Mitchell were absent. The land is located off of Maryland Avenue.

According to Juliano, the issue has been under discussion for several months. ”Now it's back on the table,” he said. ”Our commissioners did an assessment of this generous offer and determined there is an interest in acquiring ownership of five parcels.”

NVT Commissioners Consider Emergency Repairs to Damaged Alley

September 26, 2018 |

By Richard Finch Jr. | Posted in: North Versailles Twp. News

North Versailles Twp. commissioners are considering a request from people in the Arlington neighborhood for emergency repairs to an alley.

At this month's meeting, Ward 2 Commissioner Daryl Mitchell said the alley between Union and Broadway avenues is so bad, some residents can't get to their homes.

“One of the residents there can’t even back his car up, without going into a gutter --- that’s how bad it is,”  Mitchell said. "With the rain we had recently, it has gotten worse ... I know we set a budget, but with all this rain we’ve had, it’s caused a lot of damage, all I’m asking is there some way we can help make some type of improvement in that alley.”

Commission President Sam Juliano said repairing the alley was on the township's paving “wish list” earlier this year, but it was deleted for budgetary concerns.

August 22, 2018 |

By Josh Rizzo | Posted in: North Versailles Twp. News, Sports

Easing into the 2018 football season won’t be an option for East Allegheny.

In what promises to be a schedule with plenty of obstacles, the Wildcats may face their two toughest tests before Labor Day.

East Allegheny opens the season at 7 p.m. Friday by taking on defending Class 1A PIAA champion Jeannette. The following week the Wildcats will go on the road to Steel Valley -- which is ranked in the top five in the PIAA in Class 2A -- for their Allegheny Conference opener.

“You’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone in the state that has a tougher first two games of the season than us,” East Allegheny coach Dom Pecora said. “But we’ll show up every Friday ready to play.”
