Aspinwall paving work set to begin

Aspinwall paving is finally set to begin, officials said Tuesday.

A bid was awarded Aug. 14 that will target four borough roads, including Field Avenue, which has been a priority for council.

Members approved $100,000 for the annual road improvement program with a paving list that includes 6th Street, Center between 6th and 8th and Western Avenue from Freeport Road to Alley A.

Manager Melissa Lang said Field and Western avenues are the priorities.

Council last year struggled to compile a road list after the borough’s paving budget was cut to $70,000 but this year, work will come in about $11,000 under budget.

Engineer Dan Martone recommended spending that money to patch and repair bricks along Center Avenue.

In other news, paying some borough utility bills and citations just got more convenient.

Residents are able to pay water bills and parking fines on the borough website, aspinwallpa.com.

Residents will need account numbers and can pay by credit card.

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.
