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.
