'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Plans to construct a two-story office building on East Bruceton Road in Pleasant Hills will move forward.

Council on Feb. 18 unanimously agreed to accept revisions for development of land on East Bruceton Road across from the Pleasant Hills Apartments. Solicitor Fred Jug said council approval is needed to satisfy state Department of Environmental Protection sewage and pollution control requirements.

• Council also unanimously approved reducing two construction bonds for the Bowser Automotive renovation project. Since dirt moving has been completed, council eliminated a $100,250 bond for the grading permit since and reduced the bond for the Nissan facility project from $605,801 to $246,958.

• Waste Management, the borough's garbage collector, will no longer pick up televisions because of a state law that took effect in January that changes the way some items are recycled. Guardian Self-Storage on Lebanon Church Road in West Mifflin will accept televisions, with the exception of larger models, said Debbie Englert, borough manager.

• The county has denied a Community Infrastructure and Tourism Fund grant to renovate borough tennis courts, said Ned Mitrovich, borough engineer. Officials will reapply for the next round of funding.
