Greensburg officials hope to soon finalize the sale of a South Pennsylvania Avenue property that houses stores and has two parking lots.

Closing on 100-108 S. Pennsylvania Ave. is scheduled for Tuesday, city solicitor Bernard McArdle said after a city council meeting on Tuesday.

“As far as we know, everything is on course,” he said.

In November, council approved selling the property to Greensburg attorneys Gregory C. Moore and Lawrence F. Becker for $541,003.

Council authorized McArdle to finalize the sale.

Katwalk, Mancuso's Shoe Repair, Golf for Her, Herbs to Your Health and Lapels: A Fine Men's Store are in the 7,382-square-foot building.

An adjoining surface parking lot has 50 spaces, and a lower-level parking area has 71 spaces.

The agreement requires that the surface lot be used for public parking, city officials said.

In October, city leaders opened bids from five companies or individuals interested in buying the property.

During a meeting on Monday, council will vote on what to pay solicitor McArdle and Lou DeRose, attorney for the city's zoning hearing board, planning commission and historic and architectural review board.

Council has proposed paying McArdle a base salary of $24,330 for 2013 and $150 per hour for duties outside his normal scope of work, according to a discussion during Tuesday's meeting. Council has proposed paying DeRose $7,600 as solicitor for the zoning-related boards and an hourly rate of $125.

The city paid the attorneys the same rates in 2012.

Les Harvey, code enforcement officer, reminded residents that snow and ice should be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours of snowfall ending.

On Monday, council will vote on reappointments to city boards:

• Mark Dent and Gene James to three-year terms on the zoning board.

• Barbara Jones to a three-year term on the historic and architectural review board.
