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.

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.
