Fox Chapel property taxes increased this year because council voted to rebuild more borough roads.

Nearly a dozen roads in Fox Chapel are scheduled to be resurfaced this summer.

Fox Chapel council last week awarded more than $1.3 million in paving projects, including The Oaks and Hunt Road.

The following roads are expected to have drainage and catch basins installed, followed by milling and paving: White Fawn and Ridgedale lanes, Old Timber Trail, Fair Oaks, Fawn Meadow and Pheasant drives, Indian Hill Road and Glenover Place.

Several other sections of roads will be milled and paved as needed, Manager Gary Koehler said.

Youngblood Paving was awarded the contract.

Koehler said the borough bid with O’Hara and Blawnox, as they have in recent years, to earn a better price.

Fox Chapel property taxes increased this year after three years at the same rate to facilitate aggressive road rebuilding.

Council approved a tax rate of 2.95 mills, up 0.45 mills from last year, to be able to commit up to $1.4 million to road work.

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.
