Export officials awarded a bid to replace and repair the fences around the Borough’s playground on Roosevelt Avenue.
The council voted unanimously on Tuesday to award a $ 14,700 contract to Murrysville-based Leisure Time of America for repairs and replacement of the playground fence, not including a proposal in the bid for several thousand dollars of tree planting.
The offer includes the removal of a retaining wall which will be replaced by a block wall.
Council also unanimously approved a new ordinance relating to side sewage inspections on property sales and property refinancing.
The ordinance stipulates that the borough will not issue any letter of non-lien on a property until its secondary sewer has not been inspected. Lawyer Wes Long said the order will help ensure real estate companies don’t bypass inspections before they close a property.
Obtaining the non-lien letter will require a fee of $ 350 which will pay for an inspection within 30 days by the Franklin Township Municipal Sanitary Authority.
“We want to make sure everyone is aware that we are not going to put up with this,” Long said.
Mayor Joe Zaccagnini recently met with the brand new Export Business Association, whose members asked the borough to consider repainting the Washington Avenue borough parking lines to maximize land use.
“They would like to make sure that people don’t park in a space and a half,” Zaccagnini said.
The mayor said he would bring back the offers for council to consider at its November meeting. The cost is not expected to reach the threshold of $ 11,300 which requires a formal public tender.
The annual Export Halloween Parade will take place on October 29 (details to be announced in the coming weeks), and the treat will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 31 in the borough.
