Hi, Neighbors. We had an Aleppo Workshop Meeting on earlier this week and I wanted to let you know what happened.
If you want to start the meeting from the very beginning, click here. Otherwise, use the links below to jump to just those portions of the meeting that are of interest to you.
Here’s what happened:
- We were joined by RJ White, the president of the Quaker Valley Counsel of Governments (“COG”), where we discussed some major developments in COG operations, including the suspension without pay of the COG’s executive director pending an investigation into his conduct. We also discussed Aleppo’s ongoing participation in the COG. While I could not possibly begin to paraphrase all that we discussed, if you have strong feelings–one way or the other–about Aleppo’s participation in the COG, please watch this portion of the video and send me an email with your thoughts. (Click here to jump to this portion of the meeting.)
- We were informed that the long term initiative to codify the township ordinances and put them online is on target for completion by the end of the year. (Click here to jump to this portion of the meeting.)
- We heard about the initial process of adopting our 2016 budget. (Click here to jump to this portion of the meeting.)
- We were informed about our Liquid Fuels Audit and heard that there were no comments or findings. (Click here to jump to this portion of the meeting.)
- We heard about our Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System site inspection and public information campaign and learned that we have some improvements to make, which will require some money. (Click here to jump to this portion of the meeting.)

- Commissioner Jones and I presented the board and our residents with a report about what we learned at the Allegheny County League of Municipalities Fall Conference. (Click here to jump to this portion of the meeting.)
- We discussed a request by the contractors that are working on Waterworks Road for permission to work until 10:30 PM and took no action on the request because we felt as if we did not have enough information. (Click here to jump to this portion of the meeting.)
- One of our residents asked about the landfall on Camp Meeting Road, which we could not answer because it is not in Aleppo. (Click here to jump to this portion of the meeting.)
Our next meeting will be on Monday night (10/19) at 7:00 PM at the Aleppo Township Building. If any of these topics are of interest to you, please feel free to attend. If you have something to share and you cannot attend the meeting, please feel free to send me an email and I will be sure to pass that message along to the other commissioners.
Thanks for your continued support.
Aleppo Township Commissioner
