Latest Breaking News



For Immediate Release


West Manchester Township Snow Emergency will be in effect from:

Monday, March 13th at 9:00 a.m. to Thursday, March 16th at 9:00 a.m.

West Manchester Township Board of Supervisors, Emergency Personnel, and staff are urging residents to avoid unnecessary travel during the incoming winter storm.

The Township is also asking residents to remove parked vehicles from roadways. This allows public works crews to most effectively remove snow from the roads.

Forecasters currently are predicting a foot or more of snow could fall in York County on Monday into Tuesday. Winds could become blustery, particularly Monday night and Tuesday.

West Manchester Township is offering the following tips to follow once the snow begins to fall:

  • Ensure proper ventilation of furnaces, water heaters and other appliances that vent outside. Clear snow from exhaust pipes.
  • Clear snow from gas meters. Heavy snow can cover the regulator vent and block gas service.
  • Check on vulnerable neighbors, friends and relatives during and after the storm. Make sure they have an adequate supply of food, water and medicine.
  • Do not call 911 to report power outages unless the outage poses a threat to safety or property (contact numbers for electricity providers are listed below).
  • Never use a generator indoors or in an attached garage. A portable generator exhausts a deadly gas called carbon monoxide that is odorless and colorless. Place generators outside where exhaust fumes will not enter into enclosed spaces. The generator should be protected from direct exposure to rain and snow. Follow manufacturer instructions.
  • Clear fire hydrants near your home or business from snow so the hydrants are readily accessible to fire departments. Fire hydrants should be cleared of snow from about 3 feet in each direction, with a clear path to the street.
  • Clear snow off all exposed surfaces of vehicles before driving, including the top of the vehicle.
  • Take care not to overexert when shoveling snow. Push the snow as you shovel because it’s easier on your back than lifting the snow. Make sure to stretch before and after snow removal. Take breaks as necessary.

Residents can visit for more preparedness information.

Shout Out to the West York Community...

Hello -
I am contacting you to let you know that the search for our district’s next superintendent is officially underway, and we welcome your involvement in the process. The West York Area Board of School Directors invites all members of the West York community to participate in a Focus Group Discussion on Thursday, June 29th starting at 6:00 p.m. and lasting for two hours. The discussion will be held in the High School Auditorium.
We are striving to make sure everyone feels comfortable attending and expressing their views with candor and honesty. To that end, we have asked our search consultant, Tom Templeton, to facilitate Focus Group discussions.
The purpose of the Focus Group Discussions is to:
Explore the strengths and concerns of the West York Area School District.
Review key issues to be addressed over the next year and beyond.
Determine the critical skills that will be needed in the next superintendent.
There is no need to RSVP, just attend and participate!
On behalf of the West York Area School Board, I would like to thank you for continuing to support the students of West York!

Mr. Rodney E. Drawbaugh, President
