House Speaker Sam Smith said Gov. Tom Corbettâ€™s proposed $27.3 billion budget shows bigger cuts than perhaps expected in higher education, but Smith said he would like to see deeper digging into the budget for the Department of Welfare and abuses with the program.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Five years after the idea was officially proposed, a pre-bid meeting was held Tuesday for the Area Transportation Authority (ATA) terminal along North Findley Street.
The project could begin within the next couple of months, depending on the bids and a second-floor tenant.
â€śPunxsutawney is a hub for us, but we think if we construct a terminal here, we will attract more passengers,â€ť especially with the expansion of IUPâ€™s Punxsy campus, said Gabriel J. Uljon, ATA director of facilities and stationary equipment.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The Torrence Street sewer replacement project was 40 percent complete as of Tuesdayâ€™s Public Works Committee meeting.
Committee Chairman Roger Steele said there are three phases of work that will take place on Torrence Street. The first phase is the sewer replacement project, which has nothing to do with the ATA Terminal building project.
The second phase, widening Torrence Street, is scheduled to begin April 1, Steele said, adding that the sewer replacement project will conclude Friday.
