Town Workshop Meeting Minutes

Woodsboro, Maryland
August 24, 2015

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

Burgess Smith, Commissioners Rittelmeyer, Spruill and Piechowski. Absent from the meeting was Commissioner Kellar.

There were two guests and no residents in attendance.

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

After review of the July 2015 minutes, a motion to accept them as presented was passed 3 – 0.

The first line of business was with Ms. Natalie Hildebrand, business owner in town. Ms. Hildebrand was in attendance to discuss handicap parking at her business located at 208 N. Main Street. She was now granted permission by the County to have handicap parking on the street if the Town agreed with it. After a brief discussion a motion was passed to allow her one handicap parking space on the street in front of her house. Motion passed 3 – 0. The town will paint the curb for the handicap space blue and paint the remainder of the curb in front of the house red. The town will also reimburse Ms. Hildebrand for the signs and hardware that she has already purchased.

Mr. Lee Miller, Engineer for Copper Oaks II was in attendance to request information for a water study. The Council agreed that Marc Angleberger, Plant Operator had permission to release all information needed.

Susan Hauver was in attendance to introduce a text amendment for the Trout Properties. Commissioner Rittelmeyer questioned the width of the roads. He feels they need to be wider than 22 feet. Commissioner Rittelmeyer thought the alleys were fine. A discussion was then held on the Annexation Agreement. Mary and Susan will research this further. It was decided to schedule the Public Hearing at a later date.

Mary reported that Woodbury Sub-division would like to install speed limit signs. They requested the speed be posted at 20 MPH. It was decided the speed should be the same as other streets throughout town which is 25 MPH. A motion to install 4 speed limit signs passed 3 – 0.



A discussion was held on installing curb stops at the Rosewood Condos. It was recently discovered that they were never installed when the Condos were built. There is now a small leak inside the building that requires the water to be shut off at the curb. The Council decided to have two installed.

Commissioner Piechowski inquired on insurance coverage for the Council. Burgess Smith explained the town has a Professionals Liability Plan.

Mary reported the Woodsboro Scout Troop 1011 and Pack 1069 installed a new halyard, fittings and flag on the pole at the baseball field in the park.

Burgess Smith reported he has Sheriff Jenkins attending the September 8th meeting.

Commissioner Spruill opened discussion on finding a solution to revisit bullet points from previous meetings. Burgess Smith indicated he would think on it.

Commissioner Piechowski opened discussion on the water and sewer side of the operation. He inquired on how things are handled, by a plan or by reaction.

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

Respectfully submitted,
Mary E. Rice
Corporation of Woodsboro
