Crossing guards ended



WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Borough Council voted to end its practice of supplying school crossing guards for the Waynesboro Area School District because it is getting too expensive.

The school board will have to hire its own guards beginning next year, a move that will save the borough up to $15,000 a year, according to Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger.

The Waynesboro Police Department is offering to help the School Board train its own crossing guards, said Police Chief Ray Schultz.

Schultz told the council that he is asking the governor's office for local and government services to do a management study of the police department. Schultz said he wants an audit of how the department is being run concerning personnel, how it handles calls and scheduling. The state would then recommend any changes it deems necessary, Schultz said.

Schultz was appointed chief in July to succeed Glenn Phenicie, who retired. He said there are no problems in the department, but it's time to see if any improvements are needed.
