Butler Continues Building Dept. Service with Bloomingdale

Bloomingdale will provide all building department functions, with the exception of zoning, for the next five years.

The Butler Council has opted to continue a shared services agreement wherein the Borough of Bloomingdale provides all building department functions and inspection services–with the exception of zoning and property maintenance–for the borough.

The agreement, which will continue for another five years, will have identical terms and conditions as the previous five-year contract, Butler Administrator James Lampmann said during Tuesday's council meeting.

“We just take basically what was paid this year and pass it through a percent escalator, which fits within the cap,” Lampmann said regarding the cost of the service.

Councilman Robert Fox said he rarely, if ever, hears any complaints about the agreement.

“This is one of those shared services that is a win-win for both teams,” Councilman Ray Verdonik said. “It all works out well.”

Yes i beleive this a good shared service . But during this council meeting. A resident approached the Mayor and council. And thank them for repairing and replacing fire hydrants. That have been out of services for a long period of time. Then continue to question tree removals work on Keil ave. He was trying to make a point. And was rudely told from our Mayor that he wiil not go back lets move forward. Then told this resident to sit down. WAIT JUST A MINUTE THE MAYOR HAS BEEN VOTED IN BY THE PEOPLE OF BUTLER . As a resident when open to the public for discussion. Why was this resident disrespected by our mayor for a question that could have been answer with out such a negative out come. really this is on excepted behavior by our ELECTED OFFICIAL SHAME ON YOU MAYOR ALVIENE.
