Franklin Regional’s Anthony DiFalco gets his gold medal from head coach Rand Hudson after defeating West Allegheny, 1-0, in the WPIAL Class AAA boys soccer championship Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018, at Highmark Stadium. DiFalco scored the only goal.

Murrysville officials will present the Mayor’s 2018 Community Service Award to Bill Yant and recognize the WPIAL-champion Franklin Regional boys soccer team at Wednesday night’s council meeting.

Yant is a longtime member of the Murrysville Planning Commission, a local firefighter and a certified pyrotechnician who has coordinated fireworks displays in Murrysville for years.

The Panthers boys soccer team went 18-0-2 on the season, shutting out West Allegheny in the Class 3A final before the two met again in the PIAA playoffs, this time with West Allegheny advancing on a 2-1 win.

Other items on Wednesday’s agenda:

• Council will vote on advertising information related to the 2019 budget, which will be adopted at the final meeting of the year on Dec. 19.

• Council will vote on the appointment of William Paiano as director of the public works department. Paiano will replace Bob Bell, who retired after four decades with the municipality.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m., Dec. 5 at the municipal building at 4100 Sardis Road. Click here to view the full agenda.

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.
