PITTSBURGH — Allegheny county executive Rich Fitzgerald submitted three bills to County Council for consideration or referral at a meeting on Jan. 22.

The first bill was ordinance ratifying amendments to the Health Department’s Rules and Regulations, Article XXI “Air Pollution Control” to adopt changes required by the federal government to prevent the imposition of sanctions. The regulations adopt the December EPA meeting that lowered the primary annual PM2.5 standard from 15ug/m3 to 12ug/m3. This revision went through a public comment period, including a public hearing in Dec. 2018, and was approved by the Board of Health earlier this month.

The second bill was ordinance ratifying amendments to the Health Department’s Rules and Regulations, Article XXI “Air Pollution Control” related to “gasoline volatility.” The regulation will no longer be applicable in the county once the EPA approves a proposed State Implementation Plan. This revision also went through a public comment period, including a public hearing in Oct. 2018, and was approved by the Board of Health in Nov. 2018.

The third and final bill was ordinance authorizing the county to accept ten acres of land from the Allegheny Land Trust. The property is adjacent to North Park and is located in Hampton Township.

In addition to the bills, County Executive Fitzgerald submitted one appointment and five reappointments for approval. Fitzgerald submitted Lance Chimka from the Allegheny County Airport Authority. For reappointment, Fitzgerald submitted Lynne Heckman, Clifford B. Levine, and the Honorable Bob Macey, all from the Southwestern PA Commission. Along with these names, Fitzgerald submitted Charlene Petrelli from the Community College of Allegheny County and Maureen Quinn from Tri-COG Land Bank.
