Borough to 'swap' money for project


WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Borough of Waynesboro received a single bid from Valley Quarries Inc. of Chambersburg, Pa., for $231,000 to repair Prospect and Sunnyside avenues. The bid came in about $36,000 more than the borough has in its Community Development Block Grant funds which were earmarked for the projects.

Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said the money could be found in the housing rehabilitation program funds. He said that fund's budget for 2001 has $55,000 of unused money. There is $77,000 in the budget for 2003.

Hamberger said he could "swap" the housing money and pay for the street projects. The council gave him the OK to do so.




Ninth Street to be open in about a week


WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Acting Borough Engineer Kevin Grubbs said the Ninth Street extension project, much of it built by borough crews, is complete. Designed to shift truck traffic off Clayton and Fifth avenues, the new stretch of road will be open to vehicles in about a week, Grubbs said.

It ends at Pa. 997 or State Hill Road, as locals call that section of Pa. 997.

The first phase of the Ninth Street Extension project brought the road from Church Street to Clayton Avenue in 2001, a job that mainly involved paving over what was a dirt street.
