Township supervisors opt against paying lobbyists

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors on Monday passed on a $200,000 proposal to use lobbyists in a quest for millions of dollars of federal money to extend Washington Township Boulevard from Pa. 316 to Pa. 16 west of Waynesboro.

Building that stretch of the relief route would necessitate construction of a 1,000-foot bridge over the West Branch of the Antietam Creek.

The supervisors did not decide if they would go after the grant money themselves in Congress' 2009 round of transporation funding.

Public comment sought on comprehensive plan

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Public comment regarding the joint comprehensive plan being developed by Washington Township, Pa., and the Borough of Waynesboro will be received at the Nov. 3 meeting of the Washington Township Supervisors.


Officials from both municipalities hope to have the plan mostly completed by the end of the year. The plan serves as the basis for future decisions about zoning, land use, recreation and more.

Drafts of the joint comprehensive plan can be viewed at or
