Frederick, Orchard drives in Manor to be paved

| Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

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.

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.
