Townships reach agreement on boundary dispute



Brown’s survey includes maps from the early 1800s and 1900s.

“It is just a matter of cooperation,” Trimbath said. “Fred brought the railroad information in and made common sense of it.”

Guzic said he never believed the line was at the bottom of the hill, and agrees with the determination that is it about midway to the top.

“We’re going to lose a little bit on one end, but we’re gaining a little bit on the end toward Blair County,” he said.

The redesignation has no impact on any homes or businesses.

Officials of both townships will talk to their solicitors and take steps over the next few months to approve the new line and have the information filed at the Cambria County Courthouse.
