Brookville Borough Approves New Wastewater Treatment Plant

BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) — Brookville Borough Council approved building a new wastewater treatment plant at Tuesday night’s meeting.

The planning commission recently approved it. It will be located behind the current plant.

It was nearly two years ago that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) awarded a federal grant in the amount of $8,078,900 to Brookville Municipal Authority to replace the treatment plant.

The Authority also received a loan for $9.7 million.

In other business, the borough approved Public Works Director Dave Vallosio’s salary at $53,645.

Vallosio reported that his department was busy with cleaning up wind damage from the recent storms and getting ready for spring, working on mowers and other equipment.

Police Chief Jason Brown said his department received a bid of $710 from William Keys for the old police cruiser.

Brown also reported his department received 1,588 calls in February, made 116 traffic stops, made three felony arrests, 29 on misdemeanors and 21 for summary charges.

Borough Manager Dana Shick asked for Resolution 529-17 to be approved. It makes the borough manager, no matter who it is, the Chief Administrative Officer of the municipal pension plan.
