East Huntingdon Supervisors look toward summer

After finishing the sweeping and cleaning of the East Huntingdon township roads from the winter salt and antiskid debris, the supervisors are looking to summer and the road work and roadside cleaning that they are now planning to complete.

“We have some patching to do and we are cleaning ditches and cleaning pipes,” Supervisor Joel Suter said. “We're getting ready.” Supervisor Howard Keefer said that most of the township trucks are now ready for summer work.

“We still have a few that are winter-ready, but we are in the process of getting them done,” Keefer said of the trucks.

The supervisors also reported they will soon be traveling the township roads to see which ones are in need of oil and chipping.

“We're going to start to get the roads ready for oil and chipping,” Keefer said. “We'll go out and do a visual check. We have an idea which ones may need it, but we won't know for sure until we go out.”

The supervisors performed one landfill inspection in the last two weeks and received no odor complaints.

The supervisors passed a motion to approve the modification or contraction contracts to David and Kim Lewandowski to erect a 2,000-square foot single dwelling house and also to Gregory Bauer to erect a 32-by-40 foot pole building.

The annual permit was also granted to the Sunnydale Mobile Home Park.

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.
