Borough Council opposes grant cuts


WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Borough Council Wednesday passed a resolution saying the borough is opposed to cuts in the federal Community Development Block Program funding program being proposed by the Bush administration.

Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said the borough usually gets between $150,000 to $200,000 a year from the federal hand-out.

In recent years, the borough has used the money for street repairs in low- to moderate-income neighborhoods. This year, some council members want to give some of the money to local advocacy groups.




Newcomer appointed as festival liaison


WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Lorena Newcomer, the Waynesboro Borough Council's newest member, was appointed to serve as liaison between the council and the committee planning the 2006 WaynesboroFest celebration.

Councilman John Cook said the council needs to support the triennial celebration "because it means a lot to the community. People need to get involved too," he said.

The festival, an offshoot of Waynesboro's 250th bicentennial celebration held in 1997, "is improving every time," Mayor Louis Barlup said.
