Wilmerding hears complaints, compliments from residents

Friday, July 4, 2014, 12:01 a.m.
 

Summer so far has had its downs and ups in Wilmerding.

At this week's council meeting a letter was read from some residents along Pat Mews Drive, who thanked the borough for bringing down a basketball hoop at a nearby playground.

“It has made such a tremendous difference in our lives,” those residents wrote.

Elsewhere in town some youngsters found a summertime occupation: Turning street signs around.

“They climb up the poles,” Councilwoman the Rev. Dorothy Reeves said. Some motorists reportedly have been confused finding streets as a result.

“People coming into town don't know where they're going,” Reeves said.

Some youths are working with the borough for the summer and public works crews are keeping them busy.

“They've weed-whacked every curb in the borough at least once,” Councilman Bill Pricener said.
