(Matt Drzik/Beaver County Radio)

The Beaver Falls City Council met for their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday evening, with a slighted eye towards the holiday season.

The city approved for its annual trick-or-treat times, agreeing unanimously on the block of 6:00 to 8:00 PM on Halloween Day–October 31–for the handing out of candy and other treats. A similar event, however, was tabled; the “Trunk Or Treat” to be held by BCBH Early Intervention on October 22 was held away from a vote until a designated time was decided upon. Council felt that it wanted the organization to have the best opportunity to gather townspeople for the event, and to not have it conflict with other events taking place on that Saturday.

The council also approved general fund expenditures and transactions at a total of $311,733.37, along with approval for the allocation of funds to the city’s three pension plans and additional funds to support the Fire Relief Association.

Beaver County Solicitor Garen Fedeles was present at the meeting, filling in for the absent Beaver Falls Solicitor Shannon Steele; Fedeles spoke about the upcoming Act 57 of 2022 regarding tax penalties for new homeowners taking effect soon. City Manager Charles Jones announced that two new restaurants–BF BBQ and Taste Of The Caribbean–will be opening to the public this weekend.
