'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

New Eagle road crews received a big “thank you” from borough council and residents at last night's regular monthly meeting.

The crews have been working 12-hour shifts keeping up with the snow squalls and have been doing a “great job,” according to borough President Jack Fine.

It appears their long days will continue into the warm weather months as council is in the early phases of planning their spring and summer road projects.

Borough Administrator Linda Hall said a busy paving season is expected. Eleven streets are currently under consideration for repaving, and possibly more. Council will be making more tangible plans as the snow melts, officials said.

Council is also busy “cleaning up” the borough by completing anticipated demolition work. A property on Madison Avenue was demolished Monday, with clean up slated to occur in the coming days.

Another property at 127 Union St., will be razed within the month.

In other business, council has been busy citing residents for delinquencies in paying trash collection fees. To date, 88 residents have been cited for 2012 delinquencies.

Council approved the reappointment of Paul Pro as fire chief, and hired HMT and Associates Inc. of Canonsburg, as the borough's engineer.

The engineering firm will also act as New Eagle building code officials for residential and commercial properties.

HMT will address any violations brought to their attention by borough officials in relation to building permits and code enforcement.

“We've had a lot more new construction in recent years,” Fine said, adding, “And we're really pleased to bring them on.”
