NEW CASTLE — The Neshannock Township supervisors announced plans Tuesday to pave three township roads.

They authorized Greg DelPrincipe of RAR Engineering to prepare specifications and advertise to pave Banberry Lane, Bellaire Drive and Manor Avenue. The supervisors hope to open bids at their next meeting, which is 6 p.m. Aug. 27.

The supervisors noted the county commissioners provided $6,378 through liquid fuels funds for the Banberry Lane project. This is less than anticipated, they said.

Included in the bid as options will be Spring Garden Road and Meadowbrook Drive. These streets could be included if prices are good, or patched by township crews if prices are too high, the supervisors said.

Sally Kirker of Spring Garden Road, asked why other streets, specifically Pinehurst Drive and Ridgewood Way, were not included.

DelPrincipe said roads to be paved are recommended by the township’s road foreman.

The supervisors also are seeking prices to line some township streets. They are Mitchell, Shenango, King’s Chapel, Plank, Nesbit and Valley roads, Hazelcroft Avenue, Clen-Moore Boulevard and Clover Lane.

They said bid prices will determine which streets receive center and edge lines.

The supervisors also:

•Approved a contract with Perfection Services to develop a website for the township, but details must be worked out before the site is completed.

•Agreed to install speed limit and stop signs on Meyer and Northview avenues.

•Approved a rental agreement for Hess Ice Rink with the Phantoms Amateur Hockey Association.

•Granted a fireworks permit to the Touchdown Club for Neshannock Township football games. Fireworks will be by Pyrotecnico.

•Said they are interested in obtaining bids to construct a new salt shed.
