Officials Dedicate New Franklin County Municipal Building


WAYNESBORO, Pa. (WHTM) – Officials gathered in Franklin County on Friday to dedicate a new municipal building in Franklin County.

The Township of Washington recently received $2 million under the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program to be used for the construction of the new facility, which will be located at 11798 Buchanan Trail East in Waynesboro.

The planned building will house a police station, as well as an office for the tax collector, other administrative functions and the supervisory board meeting room. The police station will provide better security for evidence and firearms and reduce response times by being located more centrally in the densely populated part of the township.

Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Under Secretary for Community Affairs and Development, Rick Vilello, celebrated investments in Pennsylvania communities.

“This planned facility, which will include a new police station and administrative offices, will help meet the needs of the township for many years to come,” Assistant Secretary Vilello said. “The Wolf Administration’s continued investments in projects like this help make Pennsylvania communities safer and better places to live, work and play.”
