O'Hara officials aren't happy with PennDOT now that the township coffers are $410,000 lighter because of emergency repairs to a 20-foot-wide sinkhole.
Last month's rain caused a super-sized storm sewer to burst and buckle part of the parking lot at the Pleasant Valley Volunteer Fire Company station on Kittanning Pike.
Township Manager Julie Jakubec said the cavern-deep hole hasn't impaired emergency vehicle access, which is about the only good news the incident has generated.
Ms. Jakubec said the state Department of Transportation should have paid the bill because it installed the pipes.
The area has been cordoned off for safety, and Ms. Jakubec said the work is expected to be completed by Monday.
"We agreed to award the work because it's emergency work, but the township is not assuming responsibility for the pipe in the future," she said.
