There was four guests and twelve residents in attendance.

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

The first line of business was with the Woodsboro Volunteer Fire Department. James Writer, Treasure, opened discussion the Fire Departments plans for their Complex on Coppermine Road. They would like to advertise it for sale again and change the zoning from R-1 to R-2, NMX or Commercial. After discussion it was decided Mr. Writer’s next step is to report to his company and then meet with Susan Hauver, the towns Planning Administrator, to submit a formal request.

Resident Jay Wolfe was in attendance to discuss future Woodsboro Days. He asked if the town could possible put resources toward it by advertising on their website, their water bill and signage a couple weeks prior to the event. Commissioner Kellar will be the liaison between the town and Woodsboro Days Committee.

Resident Kurt Weinrich, representative for the Legion baseball team was in attendance to follow up on Field 2 being used for Legion Baseball. He reported he could plant Leyland Cypress trees along the baseline by Copper Oaks Ct. or use netting and fencing which is expensive. Mr. Weinrich will get pricing on galvanized steel and plastic coated outfield fencing. Burgess Smith reiterated the need to speak with residents in Copper Oaks Ct. before coming back in front of the Council. Mr. Weinrich inquired on whether the town used the equipment shed and he was informed they do not, however Commissioner Rittelmeyer is currently storing some items for the park in it. Once those items are removed he can use it but was asked to clear it with the Rec Council first.





Mr. and Mrs. Williams of Copper Oaks Ct. was in attendance to inquire on the outcome of the Israel Creek project. Burgess Smith gave an update on what has transpired to date. A discussion was held.

Resident John Cutshall inquired on who owned the War Memorial at the North end of town and was informed the town owns the land and Legion maintains the monument. He then reported a light being out. Mary will have the maintenance guys replace it.

Mr. Carlos Delgado opened discussion on Comus quarry adding a crusher. This crusher is capable of crushing 500 ton of stone an hour. Mr. Delgado feels the town should contact the SHA and talk with Comus. Burgess Smith is concerned on how this will affect the town’s wells. Burgess Smith will write a letter to MDE about Comus and their practice.

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

Respectfully submitted,
