Meeting Minutes

Woodsboro, Maryland
August 27, 2012

The regular scheduled Workshop Meeting of the Woodsboro Town Council was held on Monday, August 27, 2012 at the Town Hall with the following members present:

Burgess Smith, Commissioners Brakebill, Rittelmeyer and Trimmer. Arriving late was Commissioner Spruill.

Burgess Smith called the meeting to order.

There was three residents and two guests in attendance.

After review of the July 2012 minutes, a motion to approve them as presented passed 3 – 0.

Under unfinished business Commissioner Brakebill opened discussion on the line painting project recently started. He suggested moving the stop sign at the corner of S. Second Street and Liberty Road so that it lined up with the stop line. Commissioner Trimmer also thought a crosswalk should be added at Blank Alley and S. Main Street.

Commissioner Rittlemeyer reported the wall mounted water fountain on the restroom beside pavilion 3 is not properly working. Burgess Smith will have the maintenance men look at it.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported on speaking with Mr. Mike Kay in reference to the wetland restoration and Mr. Kay has suggested the area not be mowed.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported trying to contact Mr. Bob Hicks to inquire on using the grant funds the town has already been approved for. One project he would like to begin is the post supporting the pavilions. Burgess Smith suggested holding off on that project until we see how the support post recently fixed do through the winter.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer would like to have the maintenance men weed the mulched playground area and around the border.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported the Catoctin Youth Association would like to hold a cross country run in the park again this year. It was decided to return the $50 reservation fee if the bathrooms and parkland was clean and orderly. Motion to return the fee if things are left clean passed 3 – 0 with Commissioner Rittelmeyer not voting.

Commissioner Spruill opened discussion on the possibility of a gun shop coming to Woodsboro. Burgess Smith explained to him that the building where the business would be is in Central Business District and meets all requirements in the code. Burgess Smith asked Commissioner Spruill to have residents with concerns send him those concerns in writing and he would address them with the business owner. Commissioner Trimmer felt that because this business met all requirements that the town should not get in the middle of residents and neighbors over their concerns and that the residents should go to them directly. Other Council members agreed. The consensus of the Council was to wait and see if the business is approved through ATF and not get involved.

Commissioner Trimmer inquired on the Mag meter for the WWTP and Burgess Smith informed him it was delivered. It was decided to have Marc contact someone to have it installed.

Burgess Smith provided a quote to have the bed of the dump truck sandblasted and painted, the inside of the bed sprayed with a moisture cure urethane coating for $ 2825.00 To have the undercarriage sandblasted, primered and repainted would be an extra $900. A motion to have all the work completed for $3725 was passed 4 – 0.

Burgess Smith opened discussion on the depressions in the road on Scarlet Oak Ct. Steve Zeender, son of Cathy and Steve Zeender was in attendance to review the as builts. Mr. Zeender is a Civil Engineer with a firm. A review of the plans and brief discussion was held.

There being no further business, a motion to adjourn the meeting passed 4-0.
