-- With the closing of Black's Bridge, businesses on Crafton Boulevard are beginning to suffer. Antique store owner Judy Seligman, who runs Back in Style Antiques & Vintage Furniture, appeared before council members last week seeking a possible solution.
"I rely on motorists driving by. They can't drive by," she said. "Maybe we could put up signage to let people know that we're back there." Seligman moved into 1935 Crafton Boulevard, the former site of Melia's Market, one year ago.
"This is a concern to all of us. It appears that there is little that we can do about it," said council president Ed Stewart initially. He further suggested that something can be done as a group such as a sign with the businesses on it. Borough manager Doug Sample invited Seligman to call the borough office and some sort of arrangement can be made in conjunction with other area businesses.
-- Mayor Susan O'Connell reported a few officers have been added to the roster for DANET now that their training is complete. Officials unanimously approved the department rejoin the District Attorney's Narcotics Enforcement Team back in July in a 7--0 vote with two council members absent. Approximately 100 Allegheny County police departments and more than 500 officers participate in DANET.
-- The Crafton Celebrates committee still in need of volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering can attend the next Celebrates meeting set for Tuesday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. "It's a ton of work. By January, we better be pretty well organized. We need people in charge of the parade, set up and tear-down and food," Stewart said.
-- There will be a bonfire, open to the public, in Crafton Park on Saturday, Nov. 4.
