Contractor gives CWSA credit

Thursday, January 3, 2013 by PAUL CMIL Special to The Press in Local News

At the Dec. 20 Coplay Whitehall Sewer Authority (CWSA) monthly meeting, the board received good news that ratepayers will get a little break from Scheuermann Excavating.

"Scheuermann agreed to reduce its charges for the Route 22 project because they didn't encounter any rock when drilling under the highway," said CWSA engineer Darryl Jenkins.

The Whitehall-based company made the offer to Jenkins during closing negotiations on the Route 22 project.

"This was a difficult project with more cave-ins then anticipated and tricky soils," said Jenkins.

Fairmont Avenue speed limit won't change

Thursday, December 27, 2012 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

Fairmont Avenue in Fullerton continues to remain a non-posted speed zone.

At their Dec. 10 meeting, the Whitehall Township Board of Commissioners voted against establishing a 35 m.p.h. speed limit zone on the road between Fifth Street and Fullerton Avenue.

The November meeting included a lengthy discussion regarding the speed limit. However, this month, the issue went to vote without discussion.
