Borough to continue league membership



CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Chambersburg Borough Council decided Tuesday to continue its membership in the National League of Cities at a cost of $1,224 annually.

The borough joined on a trial basis last year, and the council members who used the organization as a resource said the membership was valuable.
