'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.

Collier may have its new website up and running by the beginning of April.

The new site will feature a color design with pictures from around the township, a township map, history, and easier navigation for public safety telephone numbers.

Also included will be names, pictures, telephone numbers and email addresses of administration personnel and Collier commissioners.

The new website has been designed by Zoltun Design, which is located on the South Side of Pittsburgh, township Manager Sal Sirabella said.

Most of the website already has been designed. The cost for the township is $10,000, but Sirabella believes it was worth it.

“We liked the job they did with Marshall Township's new website recently. We looked at it and we talked to them,” Sirabella said.

Township and Zoltun officials were scheduled to meet this week for a last round of revisions on the new website, Sirabella said.

The current site is about eight years old. Sirabella calls it a “basic website” with few pictures and a lack of color and design. The news and information on the current site is “old” and there are no pictures of what Collier looks like now.

“What is a bit upsetting, I guess, is that it has not been updated in terms of design. We need that,” he said.

The upgraded website, he said, will be much more “user-friendly.” It will feature easier access to township information, Sirabella said.

“And it's a colorful site. That's another thing we like about it,” he said.

The new website is one of several means Collier will use to improve its image in the coming months. Collier already is placing new street signs throughout the township, and it is looking forward to its new Collier Community Center opening sometime in the spring of 2014.
