District 2 voters will cast ballots at new location

| Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2001

SCOTTDALE - Upper Tyrone Township voters in District 2 will cast their ballots at the township building's garage on Nov. 6.

The former site for District 2 elections, the Community Building across from Hickory Square Church, has been closed, and no alternative has been found in that area for the upcoming election.

District 2 voters cannot join District 1 in the township building, since regulations state that a physical barrier must separate voters of different districts.

The move is temporary until another location in District 2 is secured, or the decision to redistrict and merge the two Upper Tyrone Districts is made. Redistricting cannot occur prior to April 2002.

Voters in District 2 will receive notification of the change in polling place.

Comments from residents at Tuesday night's supervisors' meeting focused on township police officer Roger Adams' schedule.

Upper Tyrone Township resident Edwin Zaffina asked supervisors if Adams would schedule more evening hours, a request Zaffina and other residents have made in previous months.

Several residents at the meeting requested that the township set Adam's hours instead of allowing him to keep his own schedule, and direct Adams to focus on speeding and other traffic violations in the township.

Supervisor Jack Fullem said he would arrange for Adams to meet these requests. Residents also asked that a phone number be available where Adams can be reached when needed.

Regarding recycling in the township, a collection bin is now located in the township building's parking lot. Newspapers, glass, metal cans, and No. 1 and No. 2 plastics will be accepted at this location.

In other business, supervisors:

  • Stated that the Zoning and Hearing Board conditionally approved Gregory Shultz's request to operate a lumber mill on Dexter Road.

  • Informed residents that the Woods Road railroad crossing will be closed from Oct. 23 to 31 for removing and rebuilding the railroad crossing.

  • Set trick-or-treat for the township for Sunday, Oct. 28, from 2 to 4 p.m.

    You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

    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.
