Representatives of Delta Development Group Inc. addressed the Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors on Wednesday and touted their track record for funding transportation initiatives like the major road project proposed west of Waynesboro.
"I think we bring a perspective from all 75 members of our team. I'm very proud of our team and the work we've done," said Coleen M. Terry, who works in public funding for Delta Development Group of Mechanicsburg, Pa.
Township Manager Mike Christopher previously said the Delta Development Group had all 16 of its projects funded in the last federal transportation bill. The supervisors asked the lobbyists to explain how they could obtain federal money to extend Washington Township Boulevard from Pa. 316 to Pa. 16 west of Waynesboro - an effort that would require construction of a 1,000-foot bridge over the West Branch of Antietam Creek.
"Why do we need $200,000 for your services? Could it be done internally?" Supervisor Stephen Kulla asked, referring to the consultants' possible 18- to 24-month contract.
