Zoning board OKs appeals for proposed housing project

January 26, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Construction on the new Graystone Court-Punxsutawney could begin as soon as late spring, following approval from the Punxsutawney Zoning Commission regarding five appeals requested Tuesday by the project developer.

Tony Miller, senior project engineer for Stiffler McGraw Engineers of Hollidaysburg, presented a preview of the new apartment complex to be constructed at the site of the former Mary A. Wilson Elementary School, 407 East Mahoning St.

Miller said plans entail converting the former school into independent living apartments for seniors age 55 and older.

Commission: Courthouse heating issues corrected

January 26, 2011

BROOKVILLE — After a recent plunge into frigid temperatures, the Jefferson County Commissioners reported Tuesday that there are no issues with the heating system at the courthouse.

Last January, the courthouse — then only two months removed from an opening ceremony following massive renovations — sustained major water damage when frozen water pipes burst.

The water pipes were affected because of a failure with the building’s heating system. Later, engineers reported that the system had not been properly balanced or commissioned, and errors occurred that led to the breaks.
