Paving pact gets WCCC trustees' OK

| Saturday, May 12, 2012, 5:30 p.m.

The Westmoreland County Community College Board of Trustees Wednesday awarded a contract to repave the parking lot of its branch in Indiana.

Trustees unanimously awarded the $24,325 paving contract to Smoker Paving of Derry to complete the work at the Indiana Center. Smoker Paving was the low bidder on the project.

Trustees also approved a payment of $11,708 to Liberty-Stanton Construction Co. to reconnect the hydrants at Commissioners Hall to a suitable fire protection water line. During a recent test of the college's hydrant system, college officials said it was discovered the hydrants in the commissioners hall area were connected to a domestic waterline making it unsuitable for adequate fire protection.

The hydrants were connected to a suitable line and the domestic line was repaired in the project.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
