Aspinwall could remove residency requirements for police

Aspinwall council will consider removing residency requirements for full-time borough police officers.

Aspinwall council on Wednesday night is expected to discuss residency requirements for borough police.

Manager Melissa Lang said members plan to review and update civil service guidelines, which could result in permitting full-time borough officers to live further away. Currently, officers are required to live within eight air miles.

Council meets at 7 p.m. in the municipal office along Commercial Avenue.

In other news, military banners to display in the borough are still available through the District Association. The group opened applications on Nov. 1 for the Hometown Heroes program which recognizes those who are serving, or have served, the country. The District Association will pay for 25 banners, each will include the person’s name, branch of service and photo. The flags typically are 24-by-36 inches.

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.
