County Morgue Location Still Not Certain

It became clear during their Tuesday Work Session that the commissioners do not want to start a rezoning process on the property on Farmingdale Road until they are certain that they will be using that property.

When the time came for comments from those in attendance, Bill Bonanno of Ralpho Township took the Commissioners to task again for not moving forward with the county morgue project.

"I'd rather be thoughtful than rush," Commissioner Lehman replied. "This is the time to be thoughtful."

Routine business by the Commissioners included funding from a federal allocation of the county's first Community Homeless Advisor, who will be employed by the United Way of Lancaster.

The exact number of homeless in the county is not known, but could range up to 1,000 people.
