CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The office of U.S. Rep. Bud Shuster, R-Pa., announced Thursday that $600,000 in funding for water and sewer improvements at Letterkenny Army Depot has been included in a federal appropriations bill. The money would go to the Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority and be used to extend water and sewer service to parcels on the depot not served by those utilities, according to Shuster's office. The Army is turning over approximately 1,500 acres of excess property to the authority to develop for civilian use. The land is being turned over to the authority as a result of the 1995 Base Realignment and Closure Commission decision to downsize the depot.

scottb@herald-mail.com Hagerstown City Councilwoman Penny May Nigh said she thinks a city appeal for donations to help buy three fountains for city parks and to pay for repairs at a pond is an inappropriate request. Public Works Manager Eric Deike, who made the public appeal in late June, estimated the total cost of the fountains and work at about $15,000 to $20,000. Deike said if the money is raised, two new fountains would be installed at Pangborn Park, one in the park lake and one in its garden.

ANNAPOLIS -- Opposing views on the best funding plan and future for the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown will be reconciled by a group of lawmakers next week. The Senate on Thursday adopted its version of the fiscal year 2010 operating budget, which includes a 1 percent increase in funding for USM-H. The fiscal year 2010 budget adopted by the House includes reducing USM-H's $2 million budget by $500,000 and reducing funding over the next four years to $172,000 -- the amount the center would receive if it were a non-USM center.

QUINCY, Pa. - Residents learning more about chemical contamination in their wells were told Thursday by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection that, in a "worst-case scenario," all efforts to mitigate the problem could stop in June. No funding has yet been secured from the state for the Hazardous Sites Cleanup program for the next fiscal year, officials said. The program's funding and future have been in limbo every year for about four years, and contractors are leery of working with it, officials said.
