SNYDERSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - The northeastern Pennsylvania community where a gunman shot to death three people at a municipal meeting will build a new township building.

Ross Township supervisors approved a land swap Tuesday night with neighboring Monroe County to gain a new piece of land for a new township building. They'll seek grants to fund the construction.

Tuesday night's meeting was held at the Monroe County Control Center in Snydersville and is the first since the Aug. 5 shooting.

Rockne Newell is charged with killing three people because of a long feud with township officials over his junk-strewn property.

The supervisors also approved hiring a security company for any event that happens at the current township building. But it's unclear if Ross Township supervisors will ever meet there again.
