Alle-Kiski Tuesday takes
Tax scofflaws take note: Highlands School District is making good on its promise to put tax delinquent properties up for sheriff's sale. The current sale list includes properties that had been on payment plans with the district that, for whatever reason, the owners failed to live up to. May the rest of the districts in Allegheny County, which doesn't have a delinquent tax claim bureau, be as diligent.
Suspended information: Gilpin Township is being sued by two former cops, claiming their suspensions were unconstitutional. We don't know if their claims are legitimate — and that's a problem. The township has given next to no information about why the men were suspended. We understand privacy rights, but anytime public officials — cops certainly qualify as those — are suspended, the public has an interest in knowing why.
