NESHANNOCK, Pa. -- Money will be given to Neshannock Township to help repair summer storm damage.
After pursuing county aid for the summer's storm damage, the supervisors were notified that they would receive $25,000 to help fund repairs on Valley Road, North Mercer Street and Oakwood Way.
The majority of storm damage occurred during the July and September storms.
Renovations and construction continue at the township municipal building.
Bids were opened for furniture during Wednesday's meeting.
The low bid of $121,381 was received from Joseph Sylvester Construction Co. of Youngstown. Ease in Rivers of Monroeville, Pa. was the high bidder at $158,448.
Architects for the project Greer Hayden and Rocco Guido of HHSDR Architects of Sharon were on hand for the bid opening. Supervisors forwarded the information to the architects to analyze.
Supervisor Secretary Leslie Bucci said the furniture includes all desks, files, a conference room table and chairs.
About $154,000 was allotted for the furniture.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation continues plans to widen Mercer Road.
The supervisors approved two resolutions for PennDOT to purchase the property in front of the municipal building and fire station, along with the property in front of Pearson Park.
PennDOT will pay the township $1,421 to acquire the municipal building property and an additional $13,195 for the Pearson Park property.
