Veterans recognized by Carnegie council on their day

Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, 9:01 p.m.
 

Given that the Carnegie Borough Council voting meeting fell on Veterans Day Monday, council took the opportunity to invite members of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion posts to be recognized prior to the voting motions.

“Nobody does a better job of making sure our veterans are never forgotten than these two organizations,” Carnegie Mayor Jack Kobistek said.

The mayor read a proclamation recognizing the two organizations, and council presented their leaders with certificates of appreciation. He said the organizations help organize the Memorial Day parade, serve dinners at the VA hospital and participate in flag services.

“It is an honor to honor these two organizations,” he said.

• Shut-off notices have gone out to residents who have accumulated too much debt on their water sewage bills. Councilman Pat Catena said the borough is owed about $147,000 in delinquent sewage wastewater.

• Councilwoman Sue Demko said that, after years of asking PennDOT, a guardrail was installed on Forsythe Road near Carnegie Park at no cost to the borough.
