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.
