West Deer announces paving plan, money for bathroom repairs


West Deer Supervisors plan to spend almost $1 million on this year’s summer paving program.

A contract of just more than $803,500 and another worth $173,500 were awarded to Youngblood Paving of Wampum.

The larger contract is for paving Hillcrest Drive, Rickenback Road, Havencrest Drive, Dawn Road, Skyview Terrace, Paradise Drive and Kaufman Road from Bairdford to Logan roads.

Also included are Walnut, Beechnut and Chestnut streets.

The smaller contract is for Dawson Road, along with Blanchard and Hemphill roads.

No start date was given but officials said residents would be notified before work begins.

Senior citizens center bathroom repairs being planned

State Rep. Bob Brooks, R-Murrysville, will donate part of his salary to repair bathrooms at the township’s senior citizens center.

Eric Felack, chief of staff for Brooks, said the representative plans to use a portion of his salary to fund charitable causes within the 54th Legislative District.

Arrangements will be made so repairs are done when the center is not being used.

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.
