Money raised for K-9

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Waynesboro Police Chief Mark King told the Borough Council Wednesday that the money has been raised to buy a new K-9 for the department.

Ex, a shepherd breed, died recently after eight years of service with the department. King told the council that businesses and individuals had donated the $12,000 needed to purchase a new police dog from Castle's K-9 of Mechanicsburg, Pa., and have it trained for a month with its handler Cpl. John Shindledecker.

Waynesboro Veterinary Clinic earlier donated its services for the life of the new dog.

King said it will cost an additional $2,000 a year for twice-monthly training sessions.

Sewer project ready to go

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The borough has about $8 million in storm sewer work needed to correct flooding problems in the borough's south end, and a $1 million piece of the project is ready to go next year, if the funding can be secured from the state.


Pennsylvania voters in November approved a $400 million referendum for infrastructure projects, money that is available to municipalities on a competitive basis, Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said.

Wednesday the council approved hiring the Salzmann and Hughes law firm as a consultant in applying for funding of the Cemetery Avenue portion of the project. If the borough is successful in obtaining funding, the storm water sewer under the avenue could be replaced this summer.
