EVANS CITY — Borough council approved entering an intergovernmental cooperation agreement Monday, March 6, with Zelienople and Harmony boroughs and Jackson Township for stormwater management.
The agreement will fund a $250,000 study of the region, paid in part by the county’s Municipal Infrastructure Program grant. Council member Mark Widdersheim said the study will help the group determine how best to comply with MS4 requirements and mitigate flooding in the three communities.
“It’s more about disaster avoidance,” Widdersheim said.
Jason Sarver, zoning and code enforcement officer for Zelienople and Evans City and a Harmony council member, said the agreement was “advantageous” for the communities.
