Waynesboro mayor named president of association



WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Waynesboro Mayor Louis Barlup is now Pennsylvania's top mayor.

The 78-year-old Barlup has been elected president of the Association of Mayors of the Boroughs of Pennsylvania.

Barlup was serving the 665-member group as vice president. He said before a regular Waynesboro Borough Council meeting Wednesday that he will serve a two-year term.

The association's board meets three times a year in locations in eastern, central and western Pennsylvania, he said. Barlup also attends committee meetings.

Barlup, who has been mayor of Waynesboro for 13 years, said he joined the state mayor's association shortly after he was elected as the borough's chief executive officer.

The organization focuses on local government issues and the roles that mayors play in small-town Pennsylvania. The association was formed in 1942.

The job of borough mayor in Pennsylvania is mostly ceremonial. Mayors only vote on council matters to break a tie. They are also in charge of their local police departments.

There are more than 900 boroughs in Pennsylvania, he said.

Barlup is unopposed in his bid for reelection in Waynesboro this year.
