Verona Council Notebook: Police Hire & Line Painting

A part-time police officer resigned, another was hired and officials discussed painting road lines and curbs.

Here's a roundup of some items discussed at the Nov. 27 Verona Council meeting:

Police resignation and hire

Borough officials accepted the resignation of one police officer and hired another.

Officer Ryan Shook resigned after getting a full-time position at Slippery Rock University. Councilman Pat McCarthy wished him well.

Benjamin Straw has been hired as a part-time officer to fill Shook's vacancy.

Line, curb painting

Officials agreed to have the road department paint a line on a local road and the curb of a new business.

Councilwoman Sandy Drabicki-Bell has said that Wildwood Road, which currently does not have a center line, is dangerous. Because there is not dividing line, she said cars don't stay on their side of the road and it could be a liability if there's a head-on collision.

Councilman Dom Conte said the road department would work on it.

The curb at the old Midway Beer Distributor on Allegheny River Boulevard—it will reopen under a new owner soon—also will be painted yellow to prevent people from blocking the business' driveway.

Parking fines and permits

The cost of some parking fines and permits in the borough will increase in January. Click here to read more.
