Peters Township Council Gives Final Approval for Dealership Expansion
Council approved the final plan Monday night for South Hills Honda to buy land from Forest Lawn Gardens.
Peters Township Council Monday night unanimously approved the final plan for South Hills Honda to expand. The auto dealership is purchasing land from Forest Lawn Gardens next door and will combine it with land it already owns into one 4.625-acre lot.
NEW HVAC SYSTEM FOR MUNICIPAL BUILDING
Council also appointed Tower Engineering as engineering consultant to design a replacement HVAC system for the municipal building. Township Manager Michael Silvestri said the building was originally built in 1964 and last renovated in 1987.
He says the HVAC system has reached the end of its useful life. Tower Engineering submitted a bid of $77,250 to design and replace the HVAC system, as well as replace the emergency generator. Silvestri said the new generator will allow the building to be used as an operations base during emergencies or when power outages occur.
NO METAL SPIKES, PLEASE
Council also discussed whether to allow the Peters Township High School cross country team and their competitors to use spikes when they start their races on the new artificial turf on Field 5.
The turf warranty bans the use of metal spikes which the team uses. Council approved the school athletic department's idea to use ceramic spikes instead and to supply the spikes for its competitors to use when they visit Peters.
