Pitcairn road crews to repair curbs, seal cracks this month

Road improvements this month will affect street parking throughout Pitcairn, according to borough Manager Malisa Migliori.

One-day curbside parking restrictions will be rolled out throughout the month as work crews perform maintenance work on all borough streets.

Migliori said the goal is to complete between five and seven roads per day.

Homeowners will be notified of the work schedule via door hangers and Channel 4, the local community access cable channel, Migliori said.

“It is going to be an inconvenience, but it will preserve the streets,” Migliori said at the Sept. 24 borough council meeting.

Migliori said the road crews will seal cracks in the pavement and repair curbs.

Work also will include weed cutting and leaf blowing.

Pitcairn Council President John Prucnal said the maintenance is long overdue.

“In the past, we've discussed doing this, and I don't think it's been done for a while,” Prucnal said.

“It definitely will help improve and keep the roads in better shape.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
