Low bids accepted on clock painting

GREENCASTLE, Pa. The Greencastle Borough Council voted at Monday's meeting to accept the lowest bid for the painting of the public square town clock.

Councilman Harry Foley made the motion and Councilman Don Coldsmith seconded it.

The lowest bid for the clock, which has not been painted since 2001, was $6,875 from E.E. Mills and Son of Chambersburg, Pa.

"I think the price is in line," Councilman Gerald Pool said.

The other two bids were from Town and Country Painting and Construction Co. Inc. of Hagerstown with a bid of $14,806 and Cen-pe-co of Waynesboro, Pa. with a bid of $10,700.

The painting would be required to be complete by July 15, according to Kenneth Myers, the borough manager.

Borough seeks proposals for intersection improvements

GREENCASTLE, Pa. The Greencastle Borough Council voted Monday to seek proposals from local traffic engineering firms to study and prepare the designs of improvements at the intersection of U.S. 11 and Pa. 16.


Although the council has a list of local firms in mind, a complete list is not compiled, Borough Manager Kenneth Myers said.

"We met with PennDOT about trying to get improvements of Routes 11 and 16 with the proposed pavement of 16 next year," Myers said.

"JLG (JLG Industries, Inc.) uses that intersection a great bit," Borough Council President Charles Eckstine said. "They may be willing to give us money."

The possible cost of this project would be $200,000 "for the study and design work," Myers said.
