During the month of June, Scott Township Police responded to the following calls:
• Assisted Robinson EMS on an ambulance call
• Received a civil complaint concerning poor landscaping services. Resident told to call an attorney.
• Responded to several calls about tractor trailers. Vehicles were gone upon police arrival.
• Issued four citations to tractor trailers for violation of borough ordinance. In one case, the tractor trailer was towed, impounded and inspected. The cab failed inspection and required repairs prior to its release. The driver was reportedly suspended by the cab owner due to this violation.
• Two calls were received concerning door to door solicitation. In this case, the solicitor had obtained a permit from the police and was therefore allowed to solicit. It should be noted that a permit is NOT required for charitable, religious, political or philanthropic purposes or for students from local schools. The complete ordinance is available on the borough website under Chapter 134, Peddling and Soliciting.
• Two disturbance calls in which two individuals were arguing. One call was between contractors at a residence and the other in the Industrial Park. Both situations were resolved.
Recently all residents and businesses received a request for tax deductible contributions for the Crafton Volunteer Fire Department, our firefighters. I encourage all residents to send a donation. These firefighters protect our homes, respond to numerous types of emergencies, provide us with a memorable parade and keep our homeowners insurance down due to their ratings. Please send donations to CVFD, 8 Stotz Ave., Crafton, PA 15205.
Jim Stover, Mayor
