Borough Hall to temporarily close due to COVID-19
Operational changes were made on March 16th to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Since then, access to Borough Hall has been limited to by appointment only.
On, December 4th, an Indiana Borough employee reported they tested positive for COVID-19. To ensure the safety of others, Borough Hall will be temporarily closed while a professional cleaning company is brought in to disinfect and sanitize the building. This will occur on Monday, December 7th and Tuesday, December 8th. An update on the disinfecting process will be provided at Council meeting scheduled for December 8th.
A full quote from Borough Council President Peter Broad can be found below:
“On behalf of the Borough Council, let me say how saddened we are to learn that a member of our staff has been infected with COVID-19. We sincerely hope for mild case and a swift recovery. This brings home the need for all of us to remain careful in all that we do. Please, everyone, take the recommended precautions: wear a mask, maintain social distancing, avoid large gatherings.”
The Indiana Borough Police Department will remain fully operational despite offices in Borough Hall being temporarily closed. A full quote from Police Chief Justin Schawl can be found below:
“Members of the Indiana Borough Police Department continue understanding the dangers and complexities that a COVID 19 environment presents to all Indiana Borough residents, businesses, visitors, and staff. Although Borough offices will be temporarily closing the police department remains fully operational and officers continue to be available for all needs 24/7. As always, in an emergency dial 911 for police assistance. For all non-emergency police matters we can be reached at 724.349.2121 where an automated system will direct your call to a desired police contact. Do not hesitate to contact us for any needs.”
The Borough parking garage is also unaffected by this closure and will remain open and available to the public. Any resident that requires assistance with any billing, code or zoning issues are asked to email email@example.com for assistance while Borough Hall is temporarily closed.
