WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Borough of Waynesboro amended an ordinance Wednesday allowing a local businessman to put a billboard along Pa. 997 near Red Roof Storage.

Local businessman Ronnie Martin requested the change saying, as written, the ordinance made it impossible to place a billboard on his property.

The ordinance specified that any billboard had to be set back 50 feet from the center of the road and 500 feet from the right of way.

Melissa Dively, borough solicitor, said if Martin followed the ordinance as written, the only place he could have put the billboard was in the center of an existing building.

In a unanimous decision, the council agreed to amend the ordinance and give Martin what he needed to put up a billboard.

Dively said the amendment only applies to the zone for Martin's property and will remain for all others.

Martin said the billboard will be a standard 20-by-25-foot, two-sided billboard.
