Annual Raccoon Rabies Vaccination Baiting Project

As part of the 18th annual raccoon rabies baiting program, employees from the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services (WS) will team up to distribute more than 300,000 baits in all 130 municipalities across Allegheny County, and in select parts of Beaver and Washington Counties, starting on August 5 and concluding on August 9. Please be sure to keep your pets on a leash so they do not eat the bait. For more info: http://www.achd.net/raccoon/

Looking for a few good Avonworth Community Park Committee Volunteers

Ben Avon is looking for a few good residents to serve as volunteers with the Avonworth Municipal Authority – the overseeing authority for the Avonworth Community Park which provides a variety of recreational and social amenities to the five communities within the Avonworth district. There are several committee opportunities to be involved with including the Pool committee, Maintenance, Public Relations, Facilities, etc. For more information on the AMA and Park opportunities, visit https://www.avonworthcommunitypark.org/avonworth-municipal-authority.

If you are interested in donating your time and services, please contact the Ben Avon Borough office at benavon@benavon.com or (412) 766-7704.

Avon Park is Open!

Most of the park restoration has been completed and the Park is OPEN to residents. A few things to remain mindful of include:

  1. The grass has been reseeded so please be careful of the netting holding in the grass seeds. Please do your best to steer clear of the netting and the hay until the grass has grown in.
  2. The parking lot is slated to be repaved but there is no definitive timeline. The park is still usable until this takes place.  It should only take a couple of days to pave.
  3. Several other minor repairs are still in the works (including water fountain repair) but will not impede playground usage.

Please stay tuned for more information or contact the boro office with any additional questions, benavon@benavon.com or 412-766-7704.
