Plum officials plan to resurface more than 30 streets this year through a paving contract with Plum-based A. Liberoni Inc.

A little more than $1 million worth of paving will be done in Plum this summer.

Council recently awarded the contract for the work to A. Liberoni Inc. of Plum. The company bid of $1,204,993 for work on 37 roads was the lowest of eight received by the borough.

Roads to be repaved are chosen based on things such as volume of traffic, wear, structural integrity and environmental damage, Borough Manager Michael Thomas said.

“We have a paving schedule for all of the borough roads,” Thomas said. “The paving schedule identifies which roads need to be addressed at a specific year and which type of work is planned for that road.”

The following will be resurfaced this year: Ashley and Ligonier lanes, Dinwiddie, Leboouf, Peppertree, Prince George, Tionesta, Carrie Ann, Emerald, Lynn Anne, Ridgeview, Franklin, Carpenter, Eastvue, Knollview, McKim, Yetteman, Creole, Shasta and Tenton drives; Duquesne and Rampart boulevards; Fontenac, Kellyridge, Logans Ferry and Sagamore Hill roads; Ligonier, Peppertree, Rampart, Venango, Hilltop, High Ridge, Hilltop, Kellywood, Ridgewood, Capri and Windsor courts; and Cassius Street.

The borough spent about $1 million last year for 21 repaving projects.

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.
