Trafford explores code-enforcement officer's duties

| Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2013, 1:21 p.m.

Trafford's next code-enforcement officer could have duties in the borough and in another community.

Council is exploring a partnership with an unidentified municipality in which the two communities would share one person who works full-time on code issues, Councilman John Daykon said.

Daykon said the proposed arrangement would enable the communities to hire someone on a full-time basis who would be eligible for benefits such as vacation pay.

Trafford has had difficulty retaining code officers over the past two years. Two part-timers resigned, and another code officer continues to work on a part-time basis after quitting as the borough's last full-time code officer.

Appointments

Council approved two appointments to boards.

Mayor Rey Peduzzi will serve on the board of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail, replacing Corey Megon, who resigned.

Renee Kociela joins the borough's recreation board.

Fourth Street

Borough officials are making Fourth Street one way going west to east from Brinton Avenue to Cavitt Avenue.

Council approved the change last week to alleviate safety issues near the parking lot at the Manchester Room behind the public safety building.

The existing parking spaces on that section of Fourth Street will remain.

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.
