| Wednesday, June 12, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Part of Linden Avenue near the Watson Institute and the intersection of Clay St. will be paved in Sharpsburg.

Councilman Lou DeLuca said the borough will pave the street during Waton Institute's off season.

Sewer work will be included to alleviate water problems on the street.

Light posts

Two decorative light posts will cost the borough $600.

Sharpsburg officials approved purchasing the posts last week. They will be installed along Main Street in the business district.

Thompson Electrical Construction will complete the work.

Civil Service Commission

Greg Domian was sworn in as the newest member of the Sharpsburg Civil Service Commission last week.

Domian's appointment means the commission now has a full board.

Handicap parking

Handicap parking signs will be installed along Penn, Clay and Chapman streets.

Residents can request handicap parking through the borough. The spaces are open for anyone with a handicap tag.

Next meeting

The next council meeting for Sharpsburg is June 20 at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are held at the borough building on Main Street.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
