Town Workshop Meeting Minutes

Woodsboro, Maryland
August 14, 2018

The Woodsboro Town Council met today at 7:00 PM in the Town Hall with the following members present:

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

There was no guest and four residents in attendance.

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

After review of the July 2018 minutes, a motion to accept them as presented passed 3 – 0.

After review of the July 2018 financials, a motion to accept them as presented passed 3 – 0.

Under unfinished business Burgess Rittelmeyer gave a report on communications with the Kercher group since the last meeting.

Commissioner Smith reported that a resident who was served a letter to trim his trees was back from vacation and the trees have yet to be trimmed.  It was decided that if the trees are not trimmed this week we will contact him again.

Commissioner Spruill reported he has not dedicated the time to look at the radar sign data but he feels it is helping.  Burgess Rittelmeyer reported looking at the data and only seeing one timeframe in the morning when there is violators.

Commissioner Spruill reported the owner at the corner of Liberty Rd and S. Second St. has a shed in the backyard that is a mess and should be cleaned up.

Commissioner Boyer reported Planning and Zoning is quiet. Those residents who appeared before the Planning and Zoning Committee with projects have not started their project yet.

Under New Business Burgess Rittelmeyer reported on contacting a company from New Jersey to video storm drains in town and assess their damage.

Burgess Rittelmeyer reported receiving notification from the Fire Department to vacate the current office space by September 30, 2018.  He reported acquiring bids on office trailers and finding one that will rent to the town for $240 per month.  He is hoping that meetings can be held in this trailer or at one of the churches in town.  He reported the Fire Department offered their dining room but is much larger than we need for regular meetings.  He is also pricing drop boxes that will be placed at the gate leading into the WWTP where the town office will be set up.

Under comments from the public, a resident was in attendance to discuss the unsightly mess at her neighbors.  There is trash, lumber, abandoned vehicles, weeds and more all through the yard.  She is trying to sell her home and perspective buyers are walking away due to this property.  It was decided to notify the homeowner via certified letter spelling out the timeframe he has to clean up his property and avoid daily fines.

There being no further business, a motion to adjourn passed 3 – 0.
