Aspinwall hires part-time officer
Aspinwall hired Walter Salachup as a part-time police officer. He will be paid $12 an hour.
Salachup has been an officer since 2012 and currently works for the Indiana Township and West View police departments.
Mayor Joe Giuffre swore him in and he began work in the borough last Thursday.
The date for Elijah Fest and 5K is now set for July 12.
The event will be held at the ball fields in Aspinwall to raise money for the Elijah Straw Memorial Fund. The fund benefits programs for children in the area.
The program will include activities at the ball field and a 5K walk and run through the borough. The fund is in memory of Elijah Straw of Aspinwall who was killed in a car accident in 2012.
Aspinwall has agreed to join the PennDOT's Agility Program.
The program allows the borough to trade for services and equipment with PennDOT.
