April 27, 2020

The regular scheduled Workshop Meeting of the Woodsboro Town Council was held today in the St. John’s Fellowship Hall with the following members present:

Burgess Rittelmeyer, Commissioners Smith, Boyer, Cutshall and Crum.

There was no guest and two residents in attendance.

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


After review of the January 2020 minutes, a motion to accept them as presented was passed 4 – 0.

Burgess Rittelmeyer opened discussion on the Pleasants Contract. The contract amount is $153,992 and Burgess Rittelmeyer feels the work needs done now.  A motion to approve the contract as written passed 4 – 0.

Burgess Rittelmeyer presented the FY21 Budget and discussed both the General Fund and the Water and Sewer fund. There will be an increase on town taxes and water and sewer rates. Taxes will go up two cents per hundred dollars of assessed value and water will go up twenty cents per thousand gallons used with a five-dollar increase on the flat fee. The sewer’s flat fee will go up six dollars.  Burgess Rittelmeyer reported a Public Hearing to adopt the FY21 Budget would be held on May 12, 2020.

Resident Ken Morgan asked when the street sweeper would be run again. Burgess Rittelmeyer explained it is inoperable at the time but will be fixed.  A suggestion was made to have the maintenance men keep the debris away from the storm drains by approximately ten foot on each side of the drain.  Mary will let the maintenance crew know.

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