Municipalities may join the TCVCOG through council resolution. 

Each member pays annual dues and may appoint two representatives to the Board of Directors – one voting and one alternate delegate.

Member Benefits

Members are able to participate in various cost-saving cooperative ventures, including:

Code Enforcement

Certified officers will work in your town to enforce codes, report violations and use our in-house database to track the whole interaction from start to finish.

COGConnect is available on its own to any town needing a technology solution to track code enforcement.

Vactor Truck Opt-In

Use of the Vactor truck is available at a discount for members that opt-in to the program. Members can use the Vactor in their town for either seven or 15 days.

Utility Billings

Through this program, TCVCOG assumes responsibility for billing and collection for sewage, refuse and stormwater.

Appeals Board

Members can participate in our joint UCC and Property Maintenance appeals board.

Police Chief Meetings

Your municipal police chief will be invited to participate in monthly meetings to discuss opportunities and solutions to common challenges.

Accounts Payable

Check distribution for any member can be done through the TCVCOG office. Checks are processed by our staff and returned to the borough, along with financial reports, for signature and distribution by borough staff. 

Manager's Meetings

Your municipal manager/secretary will be invited to participate in monthly meetings to discuss opportunities and solutions to common challenges.


Grant Administration

The COG administers the Community Development Block Grant Program on behalf of our participating member municipalities. This service is included as part of the membership fee. The COG also administers numerous other state and federal grant contracts.

Joint Purchase

Through the InterCOC Purchasing Alliance, all members of the TCVCOG are included in the purchasing alliance which bids numerous commodities, such as line paint, swimming pool supplies, ammunition for police departments, rock salt, anti-skid, police cars, trucks and other products as requested by the various municipalities.

Land Banking

Vacant and abandoned properties are a challenging problem for any community. As such, land banks often provide marketable title to properties previously impossible to develop. TCVCOG worked with SRCOG to establish the Tri-COG LandBank to address blight within our communities

Annual Real Estate Tax Billing

The TCVCOG prints real estate tax bills for participating member municipalities, as Allegheny County no longer provides these services.

TCVCOG Active Shooter Training Program for Police

This is a collaborative training effort of the TCVCOG Police departments, bridging the gap in training disparities between our affluent and more challenged departments. This critical training also standardizes response when mutual aid is required
