License for salvage yard is renewed

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Bruce Neibert's junkyard license was renewed for 2007 by the Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors on Monday, with a warning that the board would inspect the Pa. 316 property in three to four months.

Neibert was told to clear refuse from the west side of the road and was given suggestions regarding signs and fencing.

"I've been working about as hard as I can," Neibert said.

As part of the township's agreement with Neibert, the supervisors retain about $5,000 of Neibert's money to clean up the site south of Waynesboro if deemed necessary.

Fitz recognized for 30 years of service

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Ezra G. Fitz was formally recognized for more than 30 years of service with the Washington Township Planning Commission.


The Washington Township Supervisors on Monday passed a resolution honoring Fitz and his wife, Rosalie, and presented them with gift certificates.

Fitz joined the planning commission on Feb. 16, 1976, and his term expired Dec. 31, 2006. For many years, Rosalie Fitz typed the commission's minutes.

Elena Kehoe was appointed to Fitz's seat.

Traffic light on Pa. 16 looking likely

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The installation of a traffic light at the intersection of Pa. 16 and Oller Avenue in Wayne Heights became a stronger possibility through three decisions by the Washington Township Supervisors Monday.

The supervisors agreed to complete a state form requesting traffic signal review, committed themselves to paying for the light in a letter to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and said they would fund the engineering to determine needs.

If the engineer recommends a light at the intersection, the supervisors are essentially locked into installing it, Solicitor John Lisko said.

Business is up at transfer station

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The recycling center and transfer station in Washington Township, Pa., saw increases in processed refuse in 2006.

Combined, the two facilities average almost 36 tons of waste daily, according to a report presented Monday by Township Manager Mike Christopher.
