'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.

The Mt. Pleasant Township Municipal Authority is taking final steps to connect the last residents to its sewage system.

Authority Chairman Charles Naggy said at the board's recent monthly meeting that 98 properties are still not connected to the new system.

“It's a DEP requirement that they must hook up,” board member Lee Speer said.

Naggy said 58 certified letters have already gone out to residents who have not connected.

“People have just been procrastinating, but there will be some that we have to take to the magistrate to get them to comply,” Naggy said.

Authority Manager Stacy Hayes said 40 more letters will go out this week.

“They are all in violation right now,” Hayes said.

In other business:

• Board members approved the hiring of Pam Albeckas to the position of office clerk with part-time hours, citing the need for more office manpower with the approaching establishment of quarterly billing for customers living in the Shupes Run area;

• The board directed solicitor Les Mlakar to prepare a proposal giving the authority coverage options for grinder pumps that are installed in the system at some properties.

Naggy also said the authority will examine electronic mapping of its sewage system.

“There have already been add-ons to the system, and I want to make sure 10 years from now we have good records of where everything is,” Naggy said.
