After review of the May 2012 minutes, a motion to approve them with one correction passed 3 – 0. Commissioner Brakebill abstained.

Burgess Smith opened discussion on the purchase of a Mag Meter for the WWTP. After review of three different models and prices a motion was made to purchase the one for $2,936. Additional questions was asked and discussed. The motion was amended to purchase a Mag Meter for the WWTP with the cost not exceeding $3,000. Motion passed 4 – 0.

Commissioner Brakebill opened discussion on the road sinking in front of 612 Scarlet Oak Court. He provided a handout of pictures and explained his findings to the Council. After discussion it was decided to contact MD Rural Water and have them do a water/sewer leak detection test. If they did not find anything then a professional would be called in for further evaluation. It was decided that the Town would pay for all investigations into the matter.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported the new trash cans are placed in the park and there are still a few cans throughout the park without lids.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported on the recently awarded POS grant funded projects in the Park. The total of all projects will be $29,650 with $22,238 reimbursable.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported he needs the wetland area cut in August when it dries out in order to plant trees.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported he submitted paperwork to CPP to refurbish the playground by the soccer field and did not get acceptance. He asked the Council if they wanted him to resubmit the project and all agreed he should. Commissioner Rittelmeyer suggested taking the existing see-saws at this playground down because they are too high and dangerous.

Commissioner Spruill reported on a phone call from a gentleman wishing to construct a recyclable building at the south end of town. It was determined the property was not in town limits and the town could not do anything.

Commissioner Trimmer had nothing to report.

Burgess Smith reviewed the budget to actual report with the Council.

There being no further business a motion to adjourn the meeting and go into Closed Session passed 4-0.

Respectfully submitted,
Mary E. Rice
