Prison video visitations delayed by glitches
By Sean Meyers
Bulletin Staff Writer

More than three months after a video visitation system was expected to start at the Westmoreland County Prison, the system has yet to go live.

Warden John Walton told the Westmoreland County Prison Board on Monday that he and the computer information systems department continue to work with the video provider, Renovo Software, to make the system compatible.

Rec board receives AF park funds
State Rep. Joseph Petrarca, D-Westmoreland/Armstrong, announced this week that the Latrobe-Unity Parks and Recreation (LUPR) Commission has been awarded $56,000 in state funding for a recreation project to rehabilitate the athletic field park near the dek hockey rink along Lincoln Avenue.

LUPR Executive Director Jeanne Ashley previously reported that the total for the grant is $112,000, with half coming from the state and half coming from local sources, with the local half being used as a match to secure the state contribution. She said approximately $40,500 is being donated by the Latrobe Foundation and LUPR will contribute about $5,700 in the form of in-kind services. Latrobe City Council, meanwhile, recently approved a $10,000 contribution from the city.
