Quotes sought for Memorial Park fence
WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Borough of Waynesboro officials are seeking quotes for a new fence at Memorial Park, where sledding was banned when sledders started crashing into a new fence.
The council banned sledding at the park earlier this year out of concerns someone could get hurt. Now, the board is getting estimates for a different type of baseball field fencing with removable sections for winter.
Memorial Park’s new fence was part of $90,000 worth of improvements at the park, Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said previously. The old, damaged fence had a gap for sledders or could be removed, he said.
The recreation board recommended a replacement fence to accommodate sledders, Assistant Borough Manager Jason Cohen said Wednesday.
Presentation set on developing neighborhood watch
WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Information about developing a neighborhood watch in the Borough of Waynesboro will be presented during a meeting Wednesday, Feb. 27.
Trooper Ed Asbury from the Pennsylvania State Police will discuss what is involved with the initiative, according to Waynesboro Police Chief Jim Sourbier.
“We’ll see if we can’t re-establish some neighborhood watch programs in the borough,” Sourbier said.
The police chief said people have told him the town had a program in place a couple decades ago.
The meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the second-floor council chambers at borough hall, 55 E. Main St.
