Garbage day

| Wednesday, April 7, 2004

Springfield Township Supervisors announced Tuesday that Fayette County will be hosting a garbage collection day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 15, at the Fayette County Fairgrounds for those hard-to-get-rid-of items such as used motor oil, tires and large steel appliances. There will be a cost of $1 for each tire and $2 for all appliances. Other fees may apply.

In other business, the supervisors accepted the bid from Amerikohl Mining for gravel and anti-skid for pothole patching. They also accepted bids from Joyce Oil for fuel and Better Materials for cold patch.

Supervisors approved a motion for Geo Technical to perform geological testing on Hampton Road in the township. According to Supervisor Marshall Clark, the company performs random testing in different municipalities, and will be checking to make sure there are no gas pockets that could be harmful and for other geological things. The testing will more than likely be done in July.

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.
