Property violations may close down two Baldwin Borough businesses

| Thursday, March 10, 2011

Several property maintenance violations could lead to the closure of a Baldwin Borough structure that houses two businesses, officials said.

A hearing is set for Tuesday in front of magisterial District Judge John Bova, after the owners of 5104 Old Clairton Road were cited by Baldwin Borough for property maintenance violations.

A commercial inspection late last year yielded 24 borough code violations for property maintenance, borough Manager John Barrett said. The property, which contains one building, houses two businesses -- a Motel 51 in the front and a tavern, Crystal's House of Rock, in the rear. The businesses were not cited for violations.

Neither owner could be reached for comment. Staff at the Motel 51 office declined to comment.

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.
