Bicycle racks are being installed in Aspinwall.

Borough manager Melissa Lang said the racks are being installed along Brilliant Avenue in front of Beans and Cream and State Farm, at the playground on Fifth Street and near the Fireman's Park.

Lang said letters were sent out to various businesses owners who in the past have expressed interest in having the racks in front of their business.

Stop sign

Borough officials approved a stop sign for the intersection of Brilliant Avenue and First Street for motorists going toward Freeport Road.

The sign will be installed before school begins for students.

Paving

Council expects to vote on this year's road paving program in September.

Councilman Joe Giuffre said the project will be advertised this week. Bids for the project are due by Aug. 25.

Next meeting

The next Aspinwall Council meeting is scheduled for Sept. 4 at 7 p.m.

Meetings are held at the borough building at 217 Commercial Ave.

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.
