HARRISBURG – Rep.

  • Countryside Conservancy, $119,000, for payment toward the acquisition of approximately 82 acres along Hack Road in Benton Township, Lackawanna County.
  • Meshoppen Borough, $30,000, to prepare a master site development plan for the approximately 3-acre Meshoppen Borough Park in Wyoming County.
