Revisions for office building in Pleasant Hills get OK'd

| Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013, 8:33 p.m.

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.

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.
