'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.

Residents headed to a meeting at the Baldwin Township municipal building soon will stay dry as they make their way inside.

Township engineer Glenn Jonnet is preparing bid documents for a covering that will go above the sidewalk at the upper entrance to the municipal building, Manager Rob Zahorchak said.

“We're just really trying to enhance the entrance way and provide a covering for folks,” Zahorchak said. “Right now, you have to run from your cars to get inside when it's raining or snowing.”

The township received a $19,000 grant from Allegheny County Economic Development in the spring for the project, Zahorchak said.

Township officials plan to advertise for bids this month, the manager said. A bid opening is scheduled for Oct. 8. Construction will start shortly there after.

The covering will be about 15 feet in length and cover the sidewalk area, Zahorchak said.

Halloween plans set

The annual Baldwin Township Halloween parade is scheduled for Oct. 27 from 1 to 2 p.m.

The parade will go from the municipal building, 10 Community Park Drive, to the Armstrong Park pavilion.

Trick-or-treating will be held Oct. 31 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
