Ciresi brings home $437,500 in state grants for park improvements and stormwater repairs

(Sep 20, 2022)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 20 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi announced today that he secured $437,500 in state grants that will be used for ADA accessibility and safety improvements at Chestnut Street Park in Royersford, upgrades to Pottstown’s Chestnut Street and South Street parks, and repairs to a collapsed stormwater arch in Pottstown. “This funding will help improve quality of life in our district by making our neighborhood parks more modern and accessible,” Ciresi said. “The improvements that this funding will make possible will help boost property values in our district, making our communities highly desirable places in which to reside and so increase the economic power of our municipalities.” The state funds have been granted to the following projects: $140,000 to repair and reroute a stormwater arch collapse under a commercial building at 1200 High St., the former Pottstown Hospital building that has been repurposed into office space. $125,000 to improve safety and reduce stormwater issues by replacing one play structure at South Street Park and two play structures at Chestnut Street Park with accessible play sets. Funds will also be used to correct stormwater issues. Site amenities at the parks will be expanded to include benches and trash and recycling receptacles, while Chestnut Street Park will have its play area expanded and have a new walking path installed.

Ciresi introduces legislation to make hybrid & electric vehicles more affordable for Pennsylvanians

(Sep 09, 2022)

TRAPPE, Sept. 9 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi introduced a package of bills today to help make hybrid and electric vehicles more accessible and affordable to more Pennsylvanians. At a time when more Americans are citing gas prices as a reason that they are considering purchasing hybrid or electric vehicles, Ciresi said his bills would help target the cost barriers that prevent broader adoption of fuel-efficient vehicles. The five-bill package would: Create an Alternative Fuel Vehicle Purchase Rebate Program to provide residents of Pennsylvania with rebates for the purchase of alternative fuel vehicles. This rebate of 6% of the vehicle’s total purchase price would effectively refund the state sales tax, up to a maximum rebate amount of $3,000. Make the state’s Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program permanent, double rebate amounts offered under the Program, and add hybrid vehicles as an eligible vehicle type. Help residents with the one-time costs of electric vehicle charger installation, expanding access by reducing a barrier to at-home charging, by establishing an Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Tax Credit. This tax credit would be up to $750 for the installation of a Level 1 charging port and $4,000 for the installation of a Level 2 charging port. Establish a five-year Green Vehicle Pilot Program. Applicants who own green vehicles, which include electric and hybrid vehicles, would receive an EZ-Pass account credit from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Read more

POTTSTOWN, Aug. 29 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, and Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry Secretary Jennifer Berrier showcased the strength of and opportunities for development in western Montgomery County businesses and industries, through roundtable discussions and visits to local businesses in Limerick and Pottstown on Thursday. “I want to thank Secretary Berrier for coming to our district to meet with the men and women whose businesses and factories are the engine of Montgomery County’s economic power,” Ciresi said. “I am especially appreciative of her discussions on how the commonwealth can best support workforce development and industry expansion in the 146 th Legislative District. State support of local industries is the key to helping business owners thrive by providing critical resources, training a highly skilled workforce to succeed in profitable industries, and support economic growth in Pennsylvania.” Berrier’s tour began with a roundtable discussion with multi-generational business owners in the Pottstown-Collegeville area. She outlined how the Department of Labor & Industry can support local businesses by connecting them with job applicants and supporting workforce development, such as through PA CareerLink and apprenticeship programs.

Ciresi applauds $467,636 state award for cleanup at former plating works site

(Aug 25, 2022)

POTTSTOWN, Aug. 25 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, today congratulated the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Montgomery for its state award of $467,636 to clean up the former Pottstown Plating Works property. The funds will go toward remediating the former manufacturing site, which has remained vacant since 2009. The redeveloped property, once finished, will be able to house light manufacturing, warehousing and distribution, and general small businesses. “For Pottstown to reach its full economic potential of providing jobs and family-sustaining wages to its residents, we must look for new ways to creatively re-use our legacy industrial buildings,” Ciresi said. “The new owners of Pottstown Plating Works have a solid plan for bringing this building back to productive use.” The redeveloped site will provide additional tax revenue for the borough and create jobs. According to records, the property’s former owner was delinquent in taxes and fees. As a result, the Borough of Pottstown, Pottstown School District and the county were receiving no property tax or other revenue from the property. The current owner has paid the school district, borough and county taxes since taking possession of the property, which were over $1 million. The payments are the first payments this property has produced in more than 10 years. Specifically, the funds will be used for site remediation activities, including capping a Read more

 

Ciresi, Webster introduce legislation to designate a part of Trappe’s Main Street in honor of State Trooper Branden T. Sisca

(Aug 24, 2022)

HARRISBURG, Aug. 24 – State Reps. Joe Ciresi and Joe Webster, both D-Montgomery County, have introduced legislation to rename a portion of State Route 4031 in Trappe Borough in honor of Branden T. Sisca, a Trappe resident and one of two troopers struck and killed by a drunk driver earlier this year. House Bill 2786 would designate part of the route – also known as Main Street – as the Trooper Branden T. Sisca Memorial Highway. Sisca, 29, and another trooper, Martin F. Mack III, were on duty when they were struck and killed by a drunk driver along a section of Interstate 95 in Philadelphia. Trooper Sisca served on the Pennsylvania State Police for 13 months. The governor ordered all flags flown at half-staff in honor of both Sisca and Mack. “The death of State Trooper Branden T. Sisca was a terrible loss for the Trappe community and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” Ciresi said. “As both a volunteer firefighter and a state trooper, Trooper Sisca dedicated his life to protecting Pennsylvanians, some he had known all his life, others strangers. To both, his commitment was total. We’ve chosen to rename the section of Main Street after him because it would be close to the Trappe Fire Company where he volunteered for close to half of his life, and this designation would serve as a reminder of his selfless service and sacrifice.” Born in Norristown on June 23, 1992, State Trooper Sisca and his family were residents of Read more
