White Oak police Officer Gregory Smith has been commended for his help investigating a bank robbery in December.

At Monday’s council meeting, Mayor Ina Jean Marton read a letter from FBI Supervisory Special Agent Timothy Wolford commending Smith for providing “exceptional assistance” in assisting the FBI during the investigation of the Dec. 14, 2019 robbery of the PNC Bank in White Oak.

The investigation led to the indictment March 3 by a federal grand jury of Chezeq Morgan, 26, of Monroeville, on robbery charges.

In other business, borough council approved:

• Payment to Senate Engineering Company in the amount of $16,084.

• Payment to Total Tank Works, LLC in the amount of $45,655 for the fuel pump replacement project.

• Payment to Merit Contracting in the amount of $20,936.50 for the White Oak Athletic Association gym lighting project.
