Superintendent Named – On Monday, May 9 the Northgate Board of School Directors voted unanimously to name Mrs. Caroline Johns as the district’s next superintendent.

“I am extremely honored and excited to join the Northgate district. It was very apparent throughout the interview process how much people in the district genuinely care about their children and the community they serve.”

Mrs. Johns received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Master of Education from Ohio University, an Educational Specialist in Administration degree from Cleveland State University and is currently completing her doctorate in Administrative and Policy Studies at the University of Pittsburgh.

Dr. Werlinich did an outstanding job working with the Board, and we want to thank him for guiding us through the process. Most importantly, we would like to thank the community for their participation in this process. Whether you attended a stakeholder meeting or shared your thoughts directly with the Board, your voice was heard and the input you provided helped us find the best candidate for the district.

The search for a new Superintendent has been a challenging undertaking, but we are extremely pleased with the result and look forward to working with Mrs. Johns. We strongly believe that Mrs. Johns is the candidate to successfully unite our district in building upon our strengths and help us overcome the challenges that we face. Her anticipated start date is July 1, 2016.

(Article from Northgate Website)

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.


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.
