Couple concerned about noise at Pa. park

May 04, 2004

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township Supervisors heard a complaint at their Monday night meeting from John and Sherry Welsh of Mentzer Gap Road about noise created by public address systems used by athletic teams, churches and other groups who use the township's Pine Hill Park.

The couple, whose home is near the entrance to the park, said they had to call police on three occasions last year because of the noise.

"I don't mind the kids yelling and screaming, but adults don't need PA systems," John Welsh said. "My house vibrates and stuff moves around. They don't need amplification. Let's get some regs (regulations) in there."

Jerry Zeigler, township zoning enforcement officer, said police have authority to enforce the rules in the park. "It's part of their job," he said.

There are rules in the park regulating noise, officials said.

"This is the start of a new season," Welsh said. "We want to nip this in the bud."
