By Jean Snyder

Ayr Township supervisors awarded a paving bid to P&W Excavating at their regular meeting last Monday evening. The supervisors received three bids for paving approximately one-half mile on Laurel Ridge Road and one-half mile on Corner Road.

P&W was the low bidder for the work with a bid of $94,167.70. The other two bids received were from New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co. ($96,208.60) and Grannas Brothers, Hollidaysburg ($110,316.10).

The contract calls for the work to be completed by August 31 of this year.

During other business, the supervisors reviewed correspondence from county planning director Mary K. Seville. Seville said that Southern Alleghenies Planning and Development Commission (SAPDC) will be working with Tri-State Traffic Data to complete traffic counts during the first week of June. According to Seville, traffic counts will be done at four sites, including South Second Street at the Giant exit; Lincoln Way East at Cito Road (Seventh Street); Fulton Drive at both the east and west end; and Cito Road south near Tritle Drive.

Also in response to a letter from Capital Tax Collection, the supervisors approved allowing credit to taxpayers who work in Pennsylvania and live in other states. Those taxpayers have their local earned income taxes remitted to municipalities in Pennsylvania. The supervisors approved allowing a credit for the tax paid to another state allowing a refund to people who work in Pennsylvania have local tax withheld and also pay the tax in the state in which they reside.

During other business, the supervisors reviewed a subdivision plan and referred the owner for Dept. of Environmental Protection and erosion and sedimentation permits.

Correspondence from the local Conservation District and from Commonwealth Code was also reviewed prior to the meeting’s adjournment.

The Ayr Township supervisors meet the last Monday of each month at the township building at 7 p.m. The next regular meeting is scheduled for June 24, 2013.
