'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Taxes will stay the same in Aspinwall next year.

Officials approved the $2 million budget for 2014 and set the tax rate at 4.86 mills last week.

The budget's largest expenditure of $559,550 is for the police department. The largest revenue source is real estate taxes, estimated at $1 million.

A homeowner with the average property value of $181,300 will pay $881 in taxes next year.

Parking

Officials will wait to decide on any changes to borough parking rules.

Borough Manager Melissa Lang said the committee reviewing parking would like to review how other communities handle their parking before any decisions are made.

A proposal to make the borough parking lot free between 5 p.m. and 7 a.m. and raise some parking fines was presented earlier this month but some officials said they were not pleased with that idea.
