Gifts and Greens Market
Free and open to the public, this special holiday shopping tradition at Phipps Garden Center in Mellon Park is sure to help you find the perfect gifts and holiday décor this season. A large assortment of fresh greens and garlands will be available, and our Master Gardener designers will be on hand to create custom wreaths and centerpieces just for you. The market will also offer some of the exciting varieties of poinsettias seen in our Winter Flower Show.
State Rep. Dom Costa from Stanton Heights, is introducing a bill that would create a state receivership to work in tandem with the state Public Utility Commission overseeing improvements at Pittsburg's troubled water and sewer authority. Like Act 47 they would approve budgets, set priorities and decide capital improvements to the system. However IMG Consultants, hired by the city to review PWSA, said that calls for state oversight is premature and could complicate financial maneuvers, with some residents preferring it be handled by local officials rather than under state supervision as was the case in Flint Michigan.
