Northeast Ave. issue back to committee

WAYNESBORO, PA. - About a dozen people who live near the intersection of Northeast Avenue and East Main Street attended a Waynesboro Borough Council meeting on Wednesday and expressed support for installing a traffic light there.

They were divided on whether Northeast Avenue should be made a one-way street with northbound traffic.

Many of the residents spoke about vehicles speeding in the area, making it dangerous to cross East Main Street to access the Waynesboro Mall. They suggested increased police patrols and crosswalks.

The information will be reviewed by the street committee, which will make a recommendation to the council for the area, Councilman Dick George said.

Councilman Charles "Chip" McCammon urged the council to take action without delay, but Councilman Craig Newcomer said he needed more information from the Waynesboro Tax Bureau.

The tax would be levied on everyone who works in the borough regardless of where they live.
