'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.

Paving of all of Frederick Drive and part of Orchard Drive in Manor could begin as soon as mid-September.

Manor Council hired A. Folino Construction of Oakmont on Aug. 20 to complete the work for $76,272. Orchard will be paved between Longview Drive and Chestnut Place.

The company submitted the lowest of four bids for the project. A. Folino also had the contract last year to pave parts of Lora Drive, Mt. Pleasant Boulevard and Rowe Road.

Borough engineer Ed Antonacci said the contract requires the project to begin between Sept. 22 and Oct. 16. The work likely will be completed within three days, he said.

Sign ordinance

Manor Bank officials' interest in installing a new sign has prompted the borough planning commission to review Manor's sign ordinance for prohibitions on electronic signs.

Bank officials have told council members they'd like to have a sign outside the Race Street building that advertises the bank's hours and current interest rates, as well as the temperature and time.

Basin repair

A Monroeville firm will repair a storm catch basin on Oak Street. Council agreed to pay BJC Enterprise $5,995.
