'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The aging sewerage pump station along Freeport Road in Harrison will finally be replaced.

Commissioners on Thursday night awarded a $229,000 contract to 84 Group Inc. to replace the pump station, located on the steep hillside of Freeport Road heading into Freeport Borough.

Officials hope the facility, which serves about 20 Harrison customers, will be finished by winter.

The pump station was built in 1973.

The 84 Group is based in Robinson Township, near Pittsburgh.

Harrison officials were attracted to the company because it uses a new motor that will operate the pump station more efficiently.

Liquor license hearing

Commissioners on Monday night will hold a public hearing on a request by NH Restaurant Corp. to accept transfer of a liquor license from Etna.

The company would like to establish a six-pack take-out store at 2602 Freeport Road, the site of a former car wash at a Shell gasoline station.

Getting an OK from a receiving municipality is part of the process required by the state Liquor Control Board to transfer a license across municipal lines.

Property transfer restrictions set

Commissioners on Monday night are expected to vote on an ordinance that would restrict transfer of a property subject to a pending notice of violation, compliance, or notice to repair or remove a deteriorated structure.

The action is being taken because officials have said several properties that were going through the condemnation process were transferred to another ownership, hampering local efforts to demolish dilapidated structures.

Township, businessto swap land

After a long delay, the township is ready to swap small pieces of property along Burtner Road with J.V. Manufacturing.

J.V. will donate a small parcel adjacent to the Burtner House in exchange for a small piece of township land near the Route 28 expressway.

The state Legislature had to approve the swap because the Burtner House was taken over by the township with state funds.
