The Baldwin Borough Council reacts to accidents involving pedestrians.
Responding to public safety concerns at three busy intersections on Clairton Boulevard (Route 51), the Baldwin Borough Council approved an approximately $8,000 contract in May to have those intersections marked with crosswalks. The crosswalks have since been painted by Alpha Space Control Company, of Franklin County, PA, and the Baldwin Council authorized final payment to Alpha Space at a borough meeting on Tuesday night. "Maintaining the crosswalks and pedestrian/traffic signals is the responsibility of the borough," Baldwin Manager John Barrett said on Wednesday. "The crosswalks require periodic maintenance and were due for some attention. Borough Council also wanted to respond positively to the pedestrian accidents that have taken place…

Also, the Baldwin Pool will stay open late on Community Day and other notes from a May 15 borough meeting.
Streetlights Removal Starting Crews from Duquesne Light will descend on Baldwin Borough to remove certain streetlights starting as early as the end of this month, Baldwin Manager John Barrett said a borough council meeting on Tuesday night. Barrett said that the removal process, which is expected to save borough taxpayers an estimated $66,000 annually in energy costs, should take 60-90 days to complete. A joint recommendation by Baldwin Mayor Alexander R. Bennett Jr. and Baldwin police Sgt. Kim Reising was to take away 376 borough lights, but after hearing concerns from residents during two special public meetings (1, 2) on the subject—as well as from emails and phone calls—Bennett and Reising pared their elimination list down by 10 lights…
