Township revenues look to be lower than 2011

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — The Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors on Wednesday received a new earned income tax report indicating revenue from the tax may end the year below 2011 levels.

The supervisors briefly discussed that report in relation to their 2013 budget, which is scheduled to be adopted Monday. The preliminary $4.7 million budget includes a 2-mill property tax increase that would be an additional $40 for the average tax parcel.

Jeff Geesaman, chairman of the supervisors, said he has been asked by several people about the possible tax increase. Township officials have said the municipality’s costs associated with health insurance, workers’ compensation and other insurance programs are on the rise.


“I can’t convince myself it’s not the right thing to do for now and for the future,” Geesaman said of the tax increase.

Chiropractic practice collects items for needy

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — A Waynesboro chiropractic office collected nearly 200 items during its recent canned food drive.

Advanced Chiropractic Care, 23 Strickler Ave., collected more than 185 items for its first Thanks-4-Giving can drive, according to Lynn Ann Cline, billing manager for the office.

The items were donated to the New Hope Shelter in Waynesboro and the Help Hotline, which assists people throughout the Tri-State area.

“The community’s generosity is greatly appreciated and many people will be fed with these donations,” Cline said in a news release.
