Emotions ran high the evening of August 18 as members of the Aston Township Fire Department (ATFD) #17 joined commissioners, officials and neighbors for the decommissioning ceremony of the ATFD West station, formerly known as the Aston-Beechwood Fire Company #72 on Mount Road.
“Traditions in the fire service are very important, said Sean Joyce, ATFD president. “We, as the newly formed Aston Township Fire Department, feel the same way and believe this station is a very important part of our legacy… Change is not always easy, and in order to grow and continue to serve the community we must continue to move forward.” Read more

Pennsylvania State Rep. Leanne Krueger-Braneky, D-161, last week, presented Aston Township commissioners with a check in the amount of $882,525, on behalf of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The grant funds will be used for watershed restoration at Newsome Park, and roundabouts at Donnelly Avenue and McIntrye Drive. The Newsome Park project will include improvements to a walking path and picnic areas, implementation of storm water management controls, planting native vegetation, and re-establishing two existing ponds to alleviate area flooding. The funds will also address traffic concerns by adding roundabouts on Donnelly Avenue at the site of the Community Center and at McIntrye Drive located near Neumann University. Krueger-Braneky praised commissioners and township officials for the presentation they provided on the projects. “It was very easy to advocate for these proposals because the township did such good work with the presentations,” Krueger-Braneky said. “I look forward to working with the Board of Commissioners, new Township Manager and residents of Aston.”
