Penn Township officials estimate they will spend $1.36 million this year to repave 12 roads.

Commissioners decided not to include Boyd Road, which trimmed $76,470 from the project budget.

Officials awarded A. Folino Construction a contract for $609,495 to complete pavement milling and repaving on Waugaman and Long.

Meanwhile, the township will pay Donegal Construction $30,959 to do the milling work on the remaining 10 streets, but Penn Township road workers will use municipal-owned equipment and previously ordered materials to do the paving.

During a special meeting on May 28, commissioners decided projects will be done on:

• Waugaman Road, from Harrison City-Export Road to Hyland Road.

• Long Road, from Route 130 to Seanor Road.

• Holland Road, from School Road South to Harrison City-Export Road.

• Slack Road, from the 140 block to Bouquet Road.

• Gombach Road, from the 1100 block to Blank Road.

• Fourteenth Street, from Route 130 to the township border in Jeannette.

• Gongaware Road, from Route 993 to Watt Road.

• Cypress Court, from Murrysville Road to Level Green Elementary School.

• Cherry Drive, from Route 130 to Jane Street.

• Saunders Station Road, from Route 130 to Home Drive.

• Autumn Drive, from Shady Drive to McWilliams Road.

• Shady Drive, from Murrysville Road to Autumn Drive.

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.
