Town Workshop Meeting Minutes

Woodsboro, Maryland
July 25, 2016

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 Rittelmeyer and Kellar. Absent from the meeting was Commissioners Spruill and Piechowski.

There was one resident and no guest in attendance.

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

Under unfinished business, Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported the tennis court resurfacing project was in progress.

Commissioner Kellar gave a report on the MML Convention he attended in Ocean City, MD.

Commissioner Kellar opened discussion on two recent projects in the park. The doggie poop bag station project and the children’s learning station project. He noted that some of the poop bag stations are too close to the walking path and that the learning stations are not complete. He is not asking for any action to be taken but wanted it noted that he regrets his vote of being in favor of them.

Burgess Smith opened discussion on the speed bump on North Second Street. Many drivers are unhappy with it and would like to see it removed. Commissioner Rittelmeyer was in favor of removing it but due to the lack of a quorum no vote to do so was made.

Burgess Smith reported that 208 N. Main Street has been sold and is no longer a business. He would like to see the handicap signs removed and the curb painted a color to match the natural curb.

Commissioner Kellar opened discussion on the Comp Plan. He reported that it has been eight years since a review has been done and he would like to slowly begin reviewing it.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer opened discussion on the Israel Creek-Stream Restoration project. Burgess Smith would like to meet with representatives of the project and see a plan before signing the MOU. Commissioner Rittelmeyer asked Commissioner Kellar to take the project over.




Burgess Smith opened discussion on the cable/fence that goes around certain areas in the park. He reported it is deteriorating and needs replaced. He suggested we put it in the POS program. He will meet with the maintenance men to come up with a temporary solution.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported the fence around baseball field 2 is rusted and falling down and needs attention. He also reported the Rec Council would still like to pursue the batting cage and shed.

Burgess Smith reported he was approached by a gentleman who would like to have a Babe Ruth or Legion Baseball League on field 2. A brief discussion was held on the size of the field.

Resident Jason Boyer was in attendance to inquire on his sub-division plat.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer inquired on the Good Neighbor property. Burgess Smith explained to him that they met with the Board of Appeals and the next step is with Planning and Zoning.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported it looks like the maintenance men are performing their duties.

There being no further business, a motion to adjourn the meeting passed 2 – 0.

Respectfully submitted,
Mary E. Rice
Corporation of Woodsboro
