WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Taxpayers in Washington Township got some good news Monday when the township supervisors approved a 1998 preliminary general and state funds budget about $290,000 less than this year's, said Township Manager Michael A. Christopher.
"The 1998 operating budget consisting of the general fund and state liquid fuels fund is $2,497,500, or 10.45 percent lower than 1997," Christopher said.
Supervisors Chairman Richard Eigenbrode said the board may make some changes in the budget prior to giving it final approval on Dec. 15, but he doesn't expect anything major.
