The regular scheduled Workshop Meeting of the Woodsboro Town Council was held today at the Town Hall with the following members present:

Burgess Smith, Commissioners Kellar, Spruill, Rittelmeyer and Trimmer.

Burgess Smith called the meeting to order and led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance.

There were no residents or guest in attendance.

After review of the January 2014 minutes, a motion to accept them as presented passed 3 – 0. Commissioner Rittelmeyer abstained.

Burgess Smith reported he spoke with the maintenance men in reference to the way snow is being plowed and informed them to keep the white truck off Adams Street due to its size.

Burgess Smith reported on writing letters to Mr. Rensberger about the dumpster and Mr. Nordberg for fixing the disc golf equipment. He presented copies of these letters to the Council.

Commissioner Kellar reported on a recent meeting with Planning and Zoning and the discussion they had on Mr. Rensberger’s home office. He indicated they didn’t feel Mr. Rensberger needed a restroom in his office building. Burgess Smith addressed the code and read it aloud to the Council. He will contact the town attorney for clarification.

Commissioner Trimmer reported on the water line break on Main Street and informed the Council the leak has been fixed. He also reported the finding and repairing of another leak while fixing the first one. He then explained how they fixed that leak.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported on some profanity that was spray painted on a building and piece of playground equipment in the park. It was decided to use black spray paint to cover the words until Spring when things could be repainted. Commissioner Rittelmeyer also reported on the cement abutments at the pathway bridge dropping. He will keep an eye on them.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported he will be attending the upcoming MML Meeting where he will obtain more information on POS.

Commissioner Spruill reported on a parking issue on N. Second St. The lady who resides at 6 N. Second St. believes that the street in front of the house is her personal parking spaces and is causing scenes when another vehicle is parked there. After a brief discussion it was decided that Commissioner Spruill have a talk with her.

Commissioner Kellar inquired on a letter being written to the property owners at 102 S. Adams St. Burgess Smith informed him he would prefer to stop and talk to the owner as opposed to sending a letter.

Commissioner Kellar opened discussion on the town using the third floor of the recently sold Mill on Creagerstown Rd. After a brief discussion, it was decided it was not in the town’s best interest.

There being no further business, a motion to adjourn and go into closed session passed 3 – 0. Commissioner Trimmer left the meeting early.
