Kulik: state funding awarded to Stowe Township for infrastructure project

(Mar 29, 2017)

HARRISBURG, March 29 – State Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny, today announced that an infrastructure project in Stowe Township was approved for a $150,000 state grant. The PA Small Water and Sewer fund grant was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, an independent state agency responsible for administering Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages, including Multimodal, Act 13 and water and sewer funds. "This funding will help to replace a sewer line along Stowe Avenue,” Kulik said. “Attention to infrastructure is a necessary spoke in the wheel of economic development, and I am pleased to see improvements coming to Stowe Township.” Specifically, the project will entail replacement of 1,600 linear feet of sewer line along Stowe Avenue to reduce flow and infiltration, the installation of 30 lateral connectors, five manholes and 1,600 linear feet of under-drain piping, along with restoration work for impacted roadways and curbs. The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) to administer Pennsylvania's economic stimulus packages. The CFA holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania's economic growth. The CFA consists of seven board members: four legislative appointees and the secretaries of DCED, the Office of the Budget and Department of Banking. Read more

PA Power Switch: Ask the right questions

(Dec 01, 2016)

In Pennsylvania, you can choose the company that generates your electricity – also known as your electric supplier. This means that you have the power to switch to a competing supplier who can offer the lowest price, or provide a specific service you want, such as “green” or renewable energy. All Pennsylvania residents have the right to choose their electric supplier, but your ability to switch depends on where you live. Competitive offers may not be available in all areas. PAPowerSwitch provides much of the information that you need. Before approving any agreement with a supplier, you should always read the contract thoroughly and understand the product you are purchasing, its price, when the contract ends, cancellation or other fees, and any other terms and conditions that apply, including if and when the price might change. As always, if you need more help or have questions about your situation, please contact my office . Read more

Beware IRS phone scams

(Nov 29, 2016)

Recently, my office received information about phone calls received statewide in which an individual claimed to be from the IRS and demanded payment on taxes owed. Please be aware – this phone call is a scam, and the IRS will NOT initiate first contact with you on the phone about taxes owed. Always be wary of unsolicited phone calls in which an individual claims to represent a business or government entity and aggressively demands payment. The IRS does not operate this way and will always send official correspondence through the mail to make its first contact with you. Additionally, it is important for you to know that the IRS: Never asks for credit card, debit card or prepaid card information over the telephone; Never insists that taxpayers use a specific payment method to pay tax obligations; Never requests immediate payment over the telephone and will not take enforcement action immediately following a phone conversation. Taxpayers usually receive prior notification of IRS enforcement action involving IRS tax liens or levies. Consider the other characteristics of a scam. Scammers use fake names and IRS badge numbers. They generally use common names and surnames to identify themselves. Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim’s Social Security number. Scammers spoof the IRS toll-free number on caller ID to make it appear that it’s the IRS calling. Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims Read more
