Ben Avon voters will find a full slate of choices for borough office on the Nov. 3 ballot, and are sure to pick at least one new member of council.

The potential exists for voters to replace up to four members of council and the mayor, although incumbent Lloyd Corder has a head start on the pack by appearing on both the Democratic and Repub-lican ballots. Corder was listed on the GOP ballot in the primary, but picked up enough write-in votes to secure a position on the Democratic ticket as well.

Bond refinanced

Refinancing Ohio Township's current bond will produce about $87,000 for capital projects.

The Ohio Township Supervisors voted unanimously at their Oct. 5 meeting to refinance the debt. Township manager John L. Sullivan Jr. said that favorable interest rates had allowed refinancing with no extension of the amount or term of the bond. Instead the township will receive $87,000 as a refund or reimbursement for capital projects, he said.
