Meeting Minutes

Woodsboro, Maryland
April 26, 2010

The regular scheduled Workshop Meeting of the Woodsboro Town Council was held on Monday, April 26, 2010 at the Town Hall with the following members present:

Burgess Smith, Commissioners Brakebill, Rensberger, Eaves and Rittelmeyer.

There were two guests in attendance.

Burgess Smith called the meeting to order.

The March minutes were reviewed and Commissioner Brakebill made one correction on page 2, paragraph 6, for a misspelled word. A motion to accept the minutes with one correction passed 4 – 0.

The first line of business was with Ms. Melissa Main and Ms. Mary Fitzgerald representatives of Walkersville class of ’78. The ladies were in attendance to be granted permission to plant a dogwood tree in memory of a fellow classmate, Ms. Margaret Broadwater. It was decided that Commissioner Rensberger would meet them at the park to determine a location. They would also like to have a plaque with the tree. A motion to allow the planting of a memorial dogwood tree with a plaque and the location to be determined, passed 4 – 0.

The next line of business was discussion of the FY 11 proposed budget. Burgess Smith presented the Council with a proposed budget and a discussion was held and figures for each line item established.

Commissioner Brakebill reported on an email he received from Mr. Ryan Trout who would like to use the building at 107 N. Second St. as a campaign office. It was decided not to replace the old water meter due to the short term use of the building. All Council members agreed to allow Mr. Trout to use the building.

Commissioner Brakebill also reported on the Public Hearing being held during our regular monthly meeting on May 11th for text amendments to the sign ordinance. Burgess Smith was concerned with the impact it would have on existing signs and Commissioner Brakebill informed him it would not make things any worse.

Commissioner Rensberger opened discussion on the Civil War signs and asked Burgess Smith if he had spoken to Mike Strausbough, member of the American Legion. Burgess Smith had not and Commissioner Rensberger was going to touch base with Mr. Strausbough again.

Commissioner Rensberger handed out a packet on the Civil War markers and explained where they were going to be located at Trout’s Market and at the Park. All Council members agreed with the locations shown. Commissioner Rensberger reported the brackets for the signs would be installed on May 15th and he has a contractor to do this work.

At this time Burgess Smith closed the regular meeting and went into closed session for further discussion on the FY 11 proposed budget. Motion to do so passed 4 – 0.

Respectfully submitted,
Mary E. Rice
