WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Downtown Waynesboro will have new lights along Main Street next year following a decision Wednesday by the Borough Council to replace the overhead "cobra"-type lights with brighter Victorian-style lamp posts.
Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said the new lights will save money, eliminate all overhead wiring that now feeds the current lights and make the downtown brighter.
The plan ends one started this summer by Harry Morningstar Jr., a downtown businessman who launched an effort to replace the current lights with 60 Victorian lampposts. The cost, about $30,000, was borne by donations from businesses and individuals.
