10/10/2023 STATEMENT

On October 5, 2023, Braddock Hills and Swissvale officials and employees met with representatives of Pennsylvania Department of Economic and Community Development.

Prior to this meeting, each borough was given a survey to submit to the State to assist them in their initial report. The survey requested information for each department including wages, number of personnel, equipment, vehicles, and amount of calls for past three years.

This meeting was strictly an introduction to each other and to let us know that they will begin working on an initial report to be done in the next two months. Once we receive the report, we will review it and make sure there are no concerns prior to sharing it with the public.

Again, this is still in the early planning stages and we will keep our constituents updated of each step as it happens.
