Emergency road improvements approved</p>

Council on Monday approved $81,841 in emergency road improvements to lower Glencoe Avenue, where the road is down to one lane.

Easements also were dedicated for public improvements and use in the McLean Farms Subdivision at the end of Parkedge and Trailvue roads, contingent upon receipt of a maintenance bond.

• Louis Casadei was reappointed borough engineer and code enforcement officer.

• Don Folkmire of Avacoll Drive complained that speeding traffic has increased considerably on that street, making it difficult for residents to get in and out of their driveways. "Is there anything we can do?" he asked.

Officials replied they would consider traffic calming devices such as speed humps and notify borough police of the situation.

• Council President Mark Sampogna announced that the meeting room at the Green Tree Fire Department will be renamed the William Carlisle Social Hall in memory of Mr. Carlisle, an active member of the fire department and American Legion Post 823 who died in September.


Residents told to shovel sidewalks

Scott officials reminded residents and business owners Tuesday that the township has an ordinance regulating the removal of snow from sidewalks.

Commissioner Pat Caruso of the public safety committee said snow may not be shoveled into the street and must be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowfall.

Commissioner Eileen Meyers suggested increased enforcement of the ordinance is needed, especially in areas such as Glendale and East Carnegie, which have many sidewalks.

Mrs. Caruso also suggested placing an advisory 15 mph speed limit sign for a section of Blue Jay Drive.

"It really is a problem for the slope there," she noted. Police Chief Jim Secreet added that such an ordinance may be needed to help residents back out of their driveways safely.

More discussion and action are expected Jan. 22.

In other business, commissioners discussed proceeding with sheriff's sales on some Bell Avenue properties in East Carnegie and condemning a building at 600 Carothers Ave. to make room for a parking lot. The building was purchased in April for $2,000.

The board also discussed authorizing the state Department of Transportation to inspect bridges on Bell Avenue and Lindsay Road.
