Band contracts with school to use cupola area

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- The Wayne Band on Tuesday was granted an exception to the policy governing use of the cupola area between Waynesboro's high school and middle school.

Leaders of the municipal band appeared before the Waynesboro Area School Board to say they don't have the $1 million insurance policy required to use the facility.

"In a nutshell, we can't afford it," member Wayne Bartholow said.

The school board agreed to contract with the Wayne Band for $1 for next Monday's community concert to provide the band coverage under the schools' insurance policy. Board members said the rental policy will be under review this fall.

Also, Allison Hickman with A&B Dance Dimensions questioned rental policies for the new auditorium at Waynesboro Area Senior High School. She said she called Monday and was told by administrators that money would be collected for security and custodial services, but the amount of that fee was not provided.

Business Administrator Caroline Dean said she estimated the services fee would be comparable to those charged for the old auditorium, but did not have a firm amount for Hickman. She also said she is working under the old facility's policy that there is no rental cost, assuming the security and custodial fees are paid.
