As long as the weather cooperates, East Huntingdon Township Supervisors still plan to clean township roads the week of March 17.

“Weather permitting, we'll be out that week for sure,” Supervisor Paul Hodgkiss said. The supervisors said that they announced the road sweeping early, because it is usually something that has to be planned well in advance.

“It's something that we have to announce early so people know,” supervisor Howard Keefer said, adding they will collect the anti-skid and stone from the roadways and bring it back to the township shed to be added to the existing pile as part of their recycling efforts.

The supervisors were asked about surveying being done in the Fleming Hill area of Pittsburgh Street in the township and said that they weren't sure.

“I've been there myself and I don't know,” supervisor Joel Suter said. “We've all been by there at different times and we haven't seen anybody to ask.”

The supervisors also passed a motion to give a permit to the Crossroads Village Mobile Home Park.

“It's something that they have to get every year,” Hodgkiss said of the permits.

The supervisors also passed a motion to hire Reed Smith LLC as a special counsel to East Huntingdon Township, to help them with some environmental issues.

Reed Smith LLC has expertise in that area.

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.
