(Story by Beaver County Radio News Correspondent Curtis Walsh)

(Beaver Falls, PA)  The Beaver Falls City Council met last night and had multiple items on the agenda.  One item in particular was the announcement of a historical marker to be placed in Beaver Falls.  The state chose Beaver Falls as one of the places to receive a Historical Marker to pay respect to Chinese Americans that came to the city to work during the 1800s.  The Marker is set to be placed near Keystone Profile sometime in September and more details will be available soon. The Council approved a second reading to enter into an agreement with the Housing Alliance of PA as well as approve a list of general fund expenditures totaling $231,645.16.  Also on the agenda was the appointment of Neal Mcdowell to the Beaver Falls Board of Recreation and the hiring of Chayme Chunchick as probationary officer.  Recommended by the safety committee, council also approved a closure of 7th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue on the 18th from 5pm to 10 pm for a bike night.
