South Versailles names building inspector

| Friday, Jan. 10, 2014, 2:26 a.m.

Carol Haines read the treasurer's report for the last time at Thursday's meeting of the South Versailles Township board of commissioners.

She promised she'd continue attending meetings, but watch from the back of the Coulter Fire Hall meeting room. Haines has served the community for 24 years.

“Thanks for all your years of service, Carol,” read the inscription on a cake served following the meeting.

Among the figures detailed in her final report, Haines said the township paid White Oak $1,043.50 for snow removal work over the past two months.

Steve Pichura of Building Inspection Underwriters, which runs the municipal code enforcement program for Twin Rivers Council of Governments, will serve as the township's building inspector.

Pichura's duties will include utilization of Uniform Construction Code standards in the township.

South Versailles and other Twin Rivers council members have been invited to participate in a Pennsylvania State Ethics Commission education outreach seminar scheduled for Thursday at 6 p.m. in White Oak. Friday is the deadline for municipalities to register.

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.
