Representatives from TreeVitalize will visit Aspinwall within the next month to inspect the area.

The borough received a grant to purchase 24 trees last year.

They will tour the community with members of the borough's Shade Tree Commission.

Councilman Joe Noro said the borough is eligible for a grant for 50 trees this year.

TreeVitalize makes trees available to communities in the Pittsburgh area.

After a successful planting of trees from an initial grant, communities are able to get more trees in future years.

“We should get a lot of trees this year,” Noro said.

Light pole

A light pole on Freeport Road that was broken when a truck hit it earlier this month will be replaced.

Lee Albacker, foreman of the borough's public works department, said police did catch the person who hit the pole.

Insurance will cover the replacement costs.

Albacker said the poles can cost as much as $10,000.

Next meeting

The next meeting of Aspinwall Council will be March 6 at 7 p.m. Meetings are held in the borough building at 217 Commercial Ave.
