CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - Some people like to read a restaurant review before going out to dinner, but the Chambersburg Borough Council on Monday night discussed the possibility of putting restaurant inspections on the Internet. If the council approves the plan, it would be similar to Web postings by the Pennsylvania Department of Health for restaurants outside the borough, said Assistant Borough Manager David Finch. The Web site would include the name and address of the restaurant, when it was last inspected and what violations, if any, were found.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Residents of Chambersburg need not fear when the chimes ring midnight and usher in the year 2000, according to Assistant Borough Manager David Finch. "The borough will enter the year 2000 with no major Y2K problems," Finch told the Borough Council Wednesday. He said borough departments have checked and double-checked computer systems to ensure they recognize the date instead of rolling back to 1900. Finch said the borough began the process of making sure it was Y2K compliant in August 1998 and was finished by June 30. It began with departments reviewing and checking equipment, or having manufacturers examine the equipment.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Chambersburg's systematic rental housing inspection program is running a deficit and taking more time than anticipated, but the borough council Tuesday decided to hold off on making any changes. Since inspections began in June 2002, the borough has conducted 1,392, clearing 909 rental units, according to Assistant Borough Manager David Finch. "Sometimes that can be the same unit being inspected and reinspected," Finch said in explaining why the number of inspections exceeded the number of units cleared by almost 500. So far, the inspection program has covered a quarter of the 3,641 registered units, according to Finch.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The value of building permits issued during the first six months of the year in Chambersburg is nearly equal to the value of those issued in all of 2004, according to Assistant Borough Manager David Finch. During a mid-year budget review at Monday's Borough Council meeting, Finch said building permits totaling $26.4 million were issued during the first half of this year, compared with $27.1 million last year. The figure represents a mix of residential and commercial development as the pace of development in the borough's remaining open spaces accelerates, he said.
