La senadora Santarsiero consigue 50.000 dólares para ayudar al municipio de Solebury a controlar las inundaciones en Carversville

BUCKS COUNTY – Noviembre 2, 2022 − State Senator Steve Santarsiero (D-10) has announced $50,000 in state funds for Solebury Township to assist with a project to mitigate future flooding issues in Carversville.

“Carversville Village has experienced significant flooding events over the years, but was hit especially hard during Hurricane Ida,” said Senator Santarsiero.  “After touring the damage and speaking with township staff, Solebury Township shared a plan for dredging and excavating part of the stream, which will help control future flooding from storms.  As we continue to see more severe weather from climate change, it is more important than ever that we support our communities with flood control projects like the one Solebury Township is implementing.”

The funding will be used to clean the culvert and dredge parts of the stream, a tributary to Paunnacussing Creek, at Wismer Road and Carversville Road.  It will include the removal of debris from the culvert and the use of excavation equipment for bulk excavation upstream.  This is the first phase of a larger project that includes stream restoration along the Paunnacussing Creek.

“We’ve been working on many fronts since the destruction to Carversville caused by Ida in Septiembre of 2021 to get funding to address the long-term flooding risks faced by our residents,” said Solebury Township Board of Supervisors Chair Mark Baum Baicker.  “Senator Santarsiero was able to get us these critical funds for badly-needed culvert dredging. Not only is that work so important on its own but it also seems to have created momentum toward getting us even more help, potentially on the federal level, for projects to shore up the banks of the Paunnacussing Creek through Carversville down to the Delaware River to mitigate future disasters.”

Senator Santarsiero Announces $16,155 in State Grant to Solebury Township for Body Worn Cameras for Police  

BUCKS COUNTY – Marzo 16, 2021 – State Senator Steve Santarsiero (D-10) announced Solebury Township will receive $16,155 through the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) Federal Body-Worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program Funds.  These funds will go toward the purchase of body worn camera systems for the use of Solebury Township Police.

“Keeping our communities safe requires ensuring our local police have adequate resources, including body worn cameras that increase accountability,” said Sen. Santarsiero.  “These funds for Solebury Township will help the police purchase equipment to help them do their job, while improving transparency and public safety.”

Currently, Solebury Township Police have in-car cameras and plan to make the switch to body-worn cameras.

“The Board was eager to include body-worn cameras into the township budget for 2021 and this grant will help make that a reality,” said Mark Baum Baicker, Board Chair for Solebury Township Board of Supervisors.  “Our township police have been relying on cameras in police vehicles, so the switch to body-worn cameras will be a great asset for the police department and for the safety of our community.”

The mission of the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee (CJAC) is to support a comprehensive strategy to reduce crime that prioritizes evidence-based policy and practice at every stage of the Commonwealth’s justice system.  For more information, visit the PCCD website.
