August Borough Council Public Workshop Meeting – Monday, August 3, 2020

On Monday, August 3, 2020 at 6:00 p.m., Carnegie Borough Council will hold its regularly scheduled public workshop meeting via telephone as opposed to in person at the municipal building. This measure is being taken to continue preventing the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). All members of the public who are interested in attending the meeting may contact Borough Manager, Steve Beuter at 412-276-1414 x1423 for meeting details. Members of the public are still encouraged to submit comments via email in order to proceed in an organized manner. We appreciate your understanding and continued patience during this time.


Raccoon Rabies Vaccination Baiting Program

Hand baiting will occur July 31 - August 10 and helicopter baiting will occur August 10-17.

Over the past 19 years there has been a significant reduction in human and pet exposure to rabies throughout Allegheny County. This is largely due to the efforts of the rabies vaccination program for wild raccoons, spearheaded by the United States Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services (USDA), who the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) partners with for this massive effort. This year, employees and volunteers of ACHD and the USDA will be distributing vaccine-containing baits from July 31 through August 31 across Allegheny County.

In Carnegie, baits will be delivered both by hand from ground vehicles and by helicopter. Helicopters will fly in North-South transects that do go over residential areas. Transects are close together to ensure sufficient baiting, so residents may see helicopters moving slowly over the same area multiple times within a short period of time.

Two types of bait: One is a plastic sachet (looks like a ketchup packet) coated in fish meal and a plastic sachet enclosed in a fish meal block. The fish scent attracts the raccoons who consume the bait and vaccine, resulting in the development of antibodies to the rabies virus.

The risk of adverse effects to humans and animals due to exposure to the vaccine is minimal but we urge the public to avoid contact with the bait if possible. If a stray bait must be moved, it should be picked up using rubber or latex gloves or a shovel. We are also asking the public to keep their dogs on a leash, indoors, or confined to their property as much as possible during baiting and the weeks after.In years past, we have specifically had problems with off-leash dogs consuming the baits in parks. Parks are common raccoon habitats and are therefore important areas to bait. Signs will be posted in baiting areas. More information may be found here.

EMS Sta 740 For our Carnegie neighbors, The Subscription drive for Carnegie has been sent out and we are already getting a lot of responses back and we appreciate it. There is however 1 small problem, on the small card that the resident keeps for their records, there is a space that says ID #. This is a misprint as there are no ID numbers for Carnegie residents.

We are all facing challenges during these unprecedented times. The Carnegie Police Department realizes the stress we are all under with many people out of work, many unable to leave their homes and many unable to gather with loved ones or friends to celebrate special occasions. With that being said, I want to assure you the Carnegie Police Department is here for you.

Until we are all back to normal, we will be offering a free service to the residents of Carnegie and Pennsbury Village Boroughs. If you have a family member or friend that is celebrating a special occasion the Carnegie Police Department will drive-by your home and at a distance celebrate the event. This will be done tastefully with the overhead lights flashing and sirens sounding just to let the special person know that even during these times we all care.

To organize a Carnegie Police drive-by celebration please call (412) 276-4245 or send an email with the date, time and what the special occasion is to jlkennedy@carnegiepolice.org.

Respond to the Census online, through the mail or by telephone.

It's easy and only takes 10 minutes!

An accurate 100% census count is CRUCIAL. $100,000 will be lost for every family of 5 not counted. Receiving the maximum amount of federal disaster relief funding will be necessary to reestablish Carnegie as a thriving community and to assist in the recovery of residents, businesses, organizations, and schools. It is imperative that Carnegie rebuilds quickly and efficiently with a common goal of rebuilding an even stronger, more prosperous local economy and community.

Together, we can make it happen.

Please visit our online census hub for links to complete the census

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Click here for the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) dedicated page for information on COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Stop the Spread of Germs click here.

Steps to Take:

Know the symptoms: COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath - and may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Person-to-person spread mainly occurs via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, like the flu. A less common form of transmission can take place from objects or surfaces that become infected.

Take precautions: If you are sick, stay home. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Cover your cough or sneeze. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. If you have recently traveled in an area with COVID-19 infections or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 and are showing symptoms, monitor your health and contact your doctor.

Plan ahead: Make sure you have extra food, medical supplies, and emergency kits in your home. Talk to your family, friends, and neighbors to develop emergency plans - particularly for children, seniors, and anyone with chronic medical conditions that may make them particularly susceptible to illness.

Stay informed: Stick with trusted and official sources for accurate and timely updates including CDC.gov and health.pa.gov





Given the importance of personal hygiene in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, we have suspended billing-related service shutoffs. We will continue to evaluate this suspension period as more information becomes available. Please note that your water service may be temporarily interrupted for emergency work; however, we will strive to keep interruptions to a minimum.

We have turned water service back on for customers who were previously shutoff for non-payment. This includes customers whose water service was turned off for non-payment of sewer service, even if Pennsylvania American Water is not the sewer service provider.

If your service has not yet been restored, contact us immediately at 800-565-7292.   Click Here for more information

No additional riders will be permitted in the ambulances during transports to the hospital, unless it is a minor child that requires 1 parent or guardian. We must direct all of our resources toward response readiness and limit outside contact in order to do our part.

What to expect if you call 911 till further notice - Given the current situation and the amount of unknown, Scott Twp. EMS Paramedics and EMTs will be doing the following:

1. Paramedics and EMTs will begin questioning from a distance.

2. Paramedics and EMTs might be wearing goggles, masks, and gloves. Please don't be alarmed. This is for your protection as much as it is for theirs.

3. Paramedics and EMTs may ask the patient to place a surgical mask on to help protect the patient and keep the crew remain safe.

4. Please know that each ambulance is going through extensive cleaning and decontamination.

Decals to help Emergency Service Personnel recognize those with special needs are available at the Carnegie Police Department and Carnegie Borough Administration office.

Oftentimes when first responders come in contact with a person with special needs during an emergency situation, they are unaware that the person actually has special needs. The idea for the decal is to help first responders better deal with special needs individuals by knowing in advance the person has special needs. Details from Allegheny County Councilman Pat Catena click here
