YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — Preliminary plans have been drafted for York County to build a morgue.
Commissioners are looking to build on county-owned land near the York County Annex in Springettsbury Township.
Seven county agencies in the annex would be moved to the new building.
“It’s a priority because it’s needed for the coroner to be able to function at optimum capacity in the right way,” county spokesman Mark Walters said.
The county hopes to get more grant money for the project. It won’t be able to use money from the potential sale of the county-owned nursing home because of grant guidelines.
