Finance Department

The Finance Department is responsible for all fiscal matters within the Borough, including accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll processing, and debt-related issuance and payments. The Department is located on the third floor of the Borough Building at 605 Ross Avenue, and staff are available Monday through Friday 8:00 am–4:30 pm. David Egler is the Finance Director.

Municipal Service Fees

Municipal service fees cover refuse and recycling collection, and are processed by the Turtle Creek Valley Council of Governments (TCVCOG). The current annual residential fee is $190 per residential unit; bills are sent in February with a June 30 due date and a penalty is assessed for payments made after the due date.  Contact the TCVCOG at (412) 858-5115 with questions, or to learn about available payment options. The TCVCOG is located at the Monroeville Municipal Building, 2700 Monroeville Blvd., Monroeville, PA 15146. When calling or visiting the TVCOG, make sure to have a copy of your bill with the account number and address on it.

Parking Tickets

Parking tickets can be paid in person at the Finance Office during regular business hours by cash, check, money order, or credit card. Payments may also be placed in drop boxes located on the first floor of the Borough building near the Police Department, and on the 3rd floor outside the Finance Department. Be sure to include your ticket or citation number on your check or money order. Questions related to parking fines can be answered at (412) 242-7251.  To dispute a parking ticket, complete a dispute form and return it  to the Finance Department. Your form will be forwarded to the Police Department for review, and then sent to the Magistrate, who will set a hearing date. Note that the Finance Department only processes payments, and cannot forgive or adjust fines.
