Herald of Oct. 27, 1994
The Martinsburg Municipal Authority heard a tentative proposal for a 35-percent increase in the 1995 water budget. If the proposal passes the increase will mean that the minimum rate for water customers will increase from $16.80 per quarter to $22.68. It would cost an average family of four approximately $12 more per quarter, or $48 more per year.
The Altoona-Blair County Chamber of Commerce presented its 1994 ACE Award to the late Lester Longenecker, a Clappertown farmer and farm equipment dealer for many years. He passed away Sept. 19, 1994, at the age of 89.
