The recreation department is accepting recipes for an Ohio Township Anniversary Cookbook in celebration of the community’s 210th anniversary.
It is requested that each family in the township send at least two of their favorite recipes.
These are the recipe categories: appetizers & beverages; soups and salads; vegetables and side dishes; main dishes; casseroles; breads and rolls; desserts; cookies and candy.
Recipes can be sent to the municipal building, 1719 Roosevelt Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15237 or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Commissioners Monday night were presented a prototype of the new township website, which was designed by consultant Jim Lefcakis.
The site, which will be rolled out in May, will be more interactive, and will allow residents to sign up and pay for community center classes online.
The packets for commissioners’ meetings also will be accessible online, although whether all materials will be accessible for the public is being debated.
Commissioner Steve Korbel said he would like to see all documents available to the public, as they are with North Hills school board.
“People act like the packet is this magical document with a lot of secrets,” he said. “There is nothing to hide.”
Commissioners also discussed the traffic advisory board.
The board is studying ideas to make township streets more “user-friendly” and have consistency in requests for things such as stop signs, said Commissioner Paul Trilli, chairman of the committee.
Police Chief Robert Bellan said the committee will help his department when such requests come in.
“Our guys aren’t engineers,” he said. “It’s best to sometimes have backup from a professional engineer.”
