Voters OK town of Van Wyck

Van Wyck residents overwhelmingly voted to become a town during Tuesday’s incorporation election.
Residents of the community’s 1.4-square-mile “original incorporation area” voted 67-7 to incorporate, according to Lancaster County elections officials. Incorporation is the first step in a plan that calls for the new town to grow through voluntary annexation of adjacent properties.
