Hearing scheduled for Carnegie massage parlor

| Wednesday, May 14, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

A public hearing will be held June 9 for the conditional use of a West Main Street property as a massage parlor.

Qun Shen, owner of Excel USA Trading and Services, is applying for the conditional use of the commercial property in Carnegie at 39 West Main St., which is vacant.

County property records show Michael and Anita Riley as the owners since 1992. The 2014 assessed value is $400,600.

More than $1,900 is owed in 2014 taxes on the property, according to real estate records.

The June 9 hearing, to be held at 6:30 p.m. before the Carnegie council voting meeting, will allow members of council and the public to ask questions and express any concerns about the parlor.

In other business:

• Council approved the purchase of a $38,000 Vactor Sewer Cleaner from A&H Equipment. The cleaner was not in the budget, but officials said money from the sewer fund can be used to purchase it.

“This is something we've been trying to get for a good, long time for our public works,” said council Vice President Sue Demko. “They can start doing some of our sewer cleaning in-house.”

• Offered part-time seasonal public works employment at a rate of $9 per hour to the following: Brad Moehring, Dennis Lawrence Jr., Jeffery Stephan Jr. and Jordan Oddi.

• Offered part-time season public works employment to Frank Shimatzki at a rate of $18 per hour.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

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. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
