(New Brighton, PA)  The New Brighton Borough Council met for a meeting Thursday night.  The council had a discussion about gathering ideas to increase the length of time that veterans banners can stay up on poles throughout town.  Currently the banners are only able to stay up for 6 week periods due to Duquesne Light regulations.  The Memorial Day Association requested that the council explore potential ways to keep the banners up from Memorial Day through Veterans Day. Also at the meeting, council approved municipal tax exonerations on properties located at 816 13th Street, and 907 10th Street, as well as the sale of a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria for $1700.01.  The bills were paid at a total of $268,829.43.
