New Eagle online with new website

| Wednesday, March 6, 2013, 12:01 a.m.

New Eagle residents can now go online for information about the borough.

Council members announced Tuesday that the borough's newly-established website is fully operational. Residents may now readily access borough information at www.neweagleboro.org .

The site was designed by Monongahela Chamber of Commerce member Terry Sebben and features contact information for borough officials, a fee schedule for building and other permits, common ordinances, forms, a short history of New Eagle, and a photo gallery.

Borough Administrator Linda Hall expressed council's satisfaction with the website design and features and hopes residents will find the information helpful.

In other business, council continues to collect overdue trash collection payments and fees from 89 delinquent residents. Most of these payments have been collected, according to Council President Jack Fine.

Residents are reminded that the first quarterly trash collection payment for 2013 is due April 1. Residents receive a discounted rate for making the payment by that date.

Mayor Glenn Petticord received a complaint from a resident near Madison Street and Maple Avenue concerning drainage water washing away a corner of his property. He said they are aware of the problem and will attempt to resolve the issue in the coming weeks.

Council also announced the following:

• Planning for spring and summer roadwork is ongoing, as Spring Drive was added to a list of 11 roads scheduled to be paved.

• Demolition of the former Hawk's Nest Café at 127 Union St., is complete.

• New Eagle Volunteer Fire Department officials announced that the annual car cruise will be June 8.

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.
