Annual junkyard licenses renewed
The East Huntingdon Township supervisors approved the junkyard license renewal for a few that are located in the township.
The licenses must be renewed annually, and the supervisors granted the renewal to Zelmore Brothers Auto Wreckers, Raygor Salvage and Henderson Foreign Auto Parts.
“We have five junkyards in the township that were in place before we had the ordinance,” Supervisor Paul Hodgkiss said of the ordinance that regulates those types of facilities.
The supervisors also approved modification/construction certificates to William Coen at 20 Coen Mobile Home Park for the construction of a 23-by-30-foot equipment storage building and also to William LaMantia and Denise Blystone at 253 Buckeye Road for the construction of a block foundation and a 30-by-50-foot home.
In regular business, the supervisors also approved the subdivision plan for David and Amy Hixson.
Hodgkiss and fellow supervisors Joel Suter reported they attended a construction conference that covered the planning for the upcoming construction of the new bridge at the intersection area of routes 819 and 119.
Pending the completion of inspections by the sewage inspectors and engineers for the project, the construction may begin in the spring.
Supervisors also reported that they are prepared for the inclement weather that may be hitting the area and staying in out region for the next several weeks.
“We're ready,” Suter said.
Supervisor Howard Keefer said that all the equipment is prepared in case it is needed for road clearance.
“The trucks are all ready,” Keefer said. “They are all fueled up and ready to go if needed.”

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 â 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.
