State Police liquor control enforcement officers cited a Penn Hills pizza shop with nine violations this weekend, including operating without a health permit or license.

The Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement, a branch of the state police, cited the Fireside Pizza Pub in the 11600 block of Frankstown Road, according to a statement released Sunday.

Those included: failing to maintain cleaning records for their drink dispensing system; failing to clean the dispensing system at least once a week; allowing smoking in an establishment where it was supposed to be banned; operating without a valid health department permit; and possessing or operating gambling devices.

An administrative law judge could impose a penalty ranging from $50 to $5,000 for each violation upon conviction, police said. Shop representatives could not be reached for comment.

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.
