  • Per Chapter 109 of the Township Code, sidewalks should be shoveled within 12 hours after snow/ice event is over.
  • Keep fire hydrants free of snow.

USC Administration - Tuesday, October 08, 2019





















 The Township of Upper St. Clair Board of Commissioners recognized the following volunteer firefighters for their years of service on Monday night:

-David Kropp, 30 years
-Daniel Barr, 20 years 
-Douglas Heckman, 20 years
-Craig DeRoss, 10 years
-Sean Allebrand, 5 years

Commissioner Rex A. Waller presented the Certificates of Appreciation and thanked the firefighters for their dedication to the community. 




















In addition on Monday night, the Upper St. Clair Board of Commissioners issued a proclamation establishing the week of Oct. 6-12, 2019 as fire prevention week in the Township. 
Commissioner Ronald J. Pardini presented the proclamation to Upper St. Clair Volunteer Fire Department's Fire Prevention Coordinator Russell Rauch, emphasizing that firefighters do more than put out house fires. Our Volunteer Fire Department also puts in a lot of time to teach fire prevention and keep the Township safe during and following storms.

"The community owes your a debt of gratitude and I personally want to commend you for your service," said Mr. Pardini.

The 2019 fire prevention week theme, "Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practice your escape," reminds citizens to take personal steps to increase safety from fire.

New Health Coaching Services Available in Upper St. Clair

USC Recreation - Tuesday, September 17, 2019

The Fitness team at the Community & Recreation Center at Boyce Mayview Park (C&RC) is offering a new service this fall 2019 – health coaching!

Whether your goal is to lose weight, increase energy, or improve on nutrition, a health coach at the C&RC will take time to listen to your concerns and guide you toward reaching your goals.

“We will provide support and inspiration to make positive and lasting changes to your mental, physical, and emotional well-being. No matter what condition or ailments you may have, a health coach can help you achieve a thriving life,” said Maura Trombetta, fitness coordinator.

In addition, working with a Health Coach will help you learn how to develop self-efficacy and resilience to gain strength and knowledge on personal setbacks.

Health coaching differs from personal training. Rather than designing a safe, effective fitness program, a health coach focuses on helping clients with behavior change, increasing activity, developing healthy eating practices, and lifestyle behaviors. If your health coach determines a need for personal training a 10% off discount will apply to the New Client Special only.

Health coaching services include:
-Readiness for lifestyle change assessment
-Weekly meetings and daily check-ins
-Managing obstacles to change and how to overcome them
-Goal setting
-Nutrition and exercise log review

Not sure if you are ready to commit? Meet with a health coach for a complimentary readiness assessment. It takes just 30 minutes. Contact:

The Township of Upper St. Clair’s Assistant Manager Mark Mansfield is the 2019 recipient of the Excellence in Local Government Joseph A. James Memorial Award.

This award is annually presented by the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission (SPC) to a municipal government elected or appointed official for a lifetime of exemplary governance or management; improving professionalism in municipal government; making a significant contribution to municipal government services; providing an outstanding service or facility; innovation, or outstanding leadership in a local government cause.

Following in the footsteps of past Township Manager, Douglas A. Watkins, Mr. Mansfield is now the second Township of Upper St. Clair official to receive this prestigious award reflecting decades of strong municipal leadership and governance within our community.  

On July 29, the SPC Board awarded Mr. Mansfield in downtown Pittsburgh. Later that evening at the Upper St. Clair Board of Commissioners meeting, the Commissioners also recognized Mr. Mansfield for the impressive accomplishment.

Mr. Mansfield has professionally served Upper St. Clair for 31 years, supporting the
Township and the Board of Commissioners. He led the development of a highly respected human resources program within the Township that serves as a model for other municipalities across the Commonwealth. In addition, Mr. Mansfield was instrumental in helping develop the Community & Recreation Center that has also become a model for other municipalities across the Commonwealth, as well as supporting and directing the several operating departments within the Township.

Mr. Mansfield’s professional involvement and leadership has contributed to a thriving and vibrant Upper St. Clair. He volunteers for the Local Government Academy, currently serving as the Chairman of the Board of Directors, and he has led the Western Pennsylvania Municipal Managers Association, playing a big part in enhancing communication between the western Pennsylvania municipal managers and other municipal managers across the Commonwealth.

Mr. Mansfield’s commitment to professional municipal management, with the support of the Board of Commissioners and Township Manager Matthew R. Serakowski, has helped Upper St. Clair to be recognized as one of the most well managed and respected local government organizations in the Commonwealth.

Mr. Mansfield holds a Master of Public Administration from the Graduate School of Public & International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
