WAYNESBORO, PA. -- Franklin County, Pa., submitted a detailed application to have snow-removal costs from February reimbursed by the federal government. The application was completed in early March, but additional work must be completed with it, Emergency Services Director Dave Donohue said. Notification about the reimbursement amount probably will take a few months, he said. "Between everyone, the county and municipalities, we submitted just under $800,000," Donohue said.

A discussion about reimbursing city officials for their expenses was switched from closed session to open session at Tuesday's Hagerstown City Council meeting, but nothing was resolved. It was one of two topics scheduled to be part of a private executive session. Councilman Lewis C. Metzner made a motion to discuss only the reimbursement issue in executive session - then announced that he would vote against his own motion. Metzner explained to his confused colleagues that he purposely wanted the motion to be considered so it could be defeated - which it was, unanimously.

But these days, as volunteer fire companies look for new and creative ways to make ends meet, the idea of billing is no longer a taboo subject. Some area fire companies are considering seeking reimbursement through insurance companies. And many fire companies in the Tri-State area are already trying to get paid back for incidents involving hazardous materials.

HAGERSTOWN - Robert Shipley once drove 6,000 miles a year on behalf of the organizations for which he volunteers. He claims the mileage on his income tax return, but that doesn't help much, he said. A bill introduced this week in the U.S. Senate would give the IRS discretion to raise the mileage deduction rate that Shipley and others like him would be able to claim on their returns. Under current law, mileage rates for charitable activity are fixed under the Internal Revenue Code at 14 cents per mile, according to a news release from the office of Sen. Benjamin Cardin, D-Md.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Tackling renovations to the Franklin County Career and Technology Center and construction of an academic wing for the Chambersburg Area School District as one project instead of two could lower costs and increase state reimbursement, but Chambersburg officials say much homework lies ahead.

The John R. Marsh Cancer Center in Washington County is in a unique position. It’s part of Meritus Health, but isn’t at the hospital, and therefore doesn’t qualify for Medicaid reimbursement. Del. John P. Donoghue, D-Washington, presented a bill on Tuesday to change that, making a “provider-based outpatient oncology center” eligible for reimbursement at a percentage of the applicable Medicare rate. According to Raymond A. Grahe, Meritus Health’s vice president for financial services, who spoke during the hearing, the center had $2.6 million in charges during the last six years that were considered “charity care” because the system wasn’t reimbursed.

The smaller winter storms that blanketed Washington County recently might be more tolerable than last winter's blizzards, but they are threatening local snow-removal budgets. Based on midwinter assessments, some governmental jurisdictions are likely to exceed fiscal year 2011 budgeted expenses for materials needed to keep streets passable. "Small storm or big storm, you have to treat the roads," said Eric Deike, Hagerstown's manager of public works. Many jurisdictions exceeded or doubled budgeted expenses for snow removal last winter.
