Many residents of Bellevue have received notices of delinquent taxes from PA Municipal Services (PAMS), some dating back 14 years. The borough offices have been inundated with calls of anger, bewilderment and confusion. Most residents have stated that they no longer have the records from the dates in question. The Bellevue Borough Council discussed the issue on Tuesday night and directed the borough solicitor to issue a cease and desist order to PAMS until the questions of accuracy and law can be determined. According to the borough manager, Ron Borczyk, the principal amount is over $860,000.00. Add to that; penalties, interest and collection fees, and the total due is over $2.1 million dollars. Some of the notices may be in error due to similar names or family records but some are believed to be legitimate due to failure to file returns or fraud. State law dictates no taxes over three years old can be collected unless there is fraud or failure to file yearly reports. Residents are asked to hold off paying the taxes and penalties until the issue is resolved.
Update - Bellevue Council instructed its solicitor to order PAMS to quit trying to collect earned income taxes from any time before 2013. After a meeting with the solicitor and Councilman Fodi, it was determined that the records were not accurate enough and too much time had passed to verify whether taxes had been reported or paid. Monies that had been collected will be returned.

"Pop Des Fleurs" Comes to the Hermann Museum in Bellevue

After many months of hard work, the Hermann Museum is decorated with hundreds of artificial flowers made from recycled plastic bags and crocheted fibers. This is all part of the city wide "Pop Des Fleurs" project. These facinating garlands, bouquets and potted "plants" have been provided by local artists: Susan Matthews, Cathy O'Brian, Judy Fichter and Vicky Ivancik. Others, such as Todd Glotfelty, provided some assistance. According to an article in the Tribune Review, The Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh is hoping to ignite interest in the next Fiberarts International, coming May 6th. The Hermann Museum will be displaying the decorations until the end of April. On Friday, March 4th, twelve artists will be holding a wine and cheese reception to kick off the two month exhibit.

The Ben Avon Area Historical Association (BAAHA) is looking for copies of old photos of John F. Kennedy's visit to Pittsburgh in October of 1962 for a future program and for our archives.  JFK was in a motorcade that traveled up the Ohio River Boulevard on Friday, October 12th from Aliquippa to downtown Pittsburgh and then on to McKeesport and Monessen.  During this ride, he went through the North Boros and stopped at Holy Family Institute.  We are looking for old photos that residents of the North Boros or Holy Family employees may have taken during his trip. If anyone has a photo of this event, we would appreciate it if they would scan it and send it to :


Thank you for your help in preserving the history of the North Boros.
