A new officer will join the Collier Township police force.

The board of commissioners approved hiring Jordan Fascetti, 26, for a full-time position on Aug. 14. He ranked No. 1 on the township's civil service test with a score of 97.20, township Manager Sal Sirabella said.

Fascetti is a member of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police and a paramedic with Kirwan Heights EMS. He also is a graduate of Chartiers Valley and a member of the U.S. Air Force Reserve.

In other business, the commissioners voted to take steps toward making one area of Hilltop Park dog-friendly, and they are considering plans to create a separate dog park, as well.

Commissioners voted to advertise and ordinance establishing dog park regulations. The ordinance would allow leashed dogs on the Meadow Path in Hilltop Park.

The township currently does not allow dogs in any of its parks, though the Panhandle Trail does allow dogs on leashes.

He said the commissioners are considering a separate, off-leash dog park in the township. The proposed park would be near the Sunnyside entrance to the Panhandle Trail, adjacent to the trail itself.

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
