Years after it was first proposed, a rental inspection program could be coming to the Borough of Waynesboro. The program would provide for routine inspections of the municipality's more than 2,000 rental units. “It'd be more of a systematic way of getting into properties,” said Dan Sheffler, the borough's code enforcement officer. All units would need to have plumbing, electrical, heating and other systems that meet the International Property Maintenance Code of 2012. Because of existing local laws, Sheffler said he cannot inspect a unit without being invited in by the landlord or tenant.

Supporters of charter home rule may not feel like winners this morning, but if that's true, we would beg to disagree. Triumphs can't always be measured in raw numbers or categorized by single-day snapshots. There's no ignoring the significant margin of home rule's defeat. The majority has spoken and we respect the will of the people. But we would also be derelict not to tip our caps to those who led the home rule campaign -- a campaign for better government -- and suggest that this effort was a positive experience for all involved.
