Town Workshop Meeting Minutes

Woodsboro, Maryland
July 22, 2019

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, Crum and Cutshall.

There were no guests and one resident in attendance.

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

After review of the March 2019 minutes, a motion to accept them as presented was passed 2 – 0. Commissioners Crum and Cutshall abstained.

Burgess Rittelmeyer reported on actions he took in reference to the slurry paving concerns from residents at the July town meeting.  It was noted that Creagerstown Road, near NZ Cramers, still had an area that needed attention.

Burgess Rittelmeyer reported on attending SHA’s kick-off meeting for the Israel Creek project.

Burgess Rittelmeyer reported on running an ad in the paper for Sludge Hauling. RFP’s will be collected until Friday, August 16th at 12 noon.

Commissioner Cutshall reported on water that puddles badly on Main Street. The area is in the 300 block of South Main Street and water will come halfway across the road.

Mr. Joel Rensberger was in attendance to discuss where water and sewer connections would be for the Kent Property just south of the town’s WWTP.  Commissioner Smith suggested Mr. Rensberger contact the town’s water and sewer operator.

Commissioners Smith and Cutshall would like to switch seats.  Burgess Rittelmeyer authorized the switch.  Commissioner Smith will now be the water and sewer commissioner and Commissioner Cutshall will be the streets commissioner.

Burgess Rittelmeyer provided Commissioner Cutshall with literature on cleaning and repairs to storm drain pipes.  A project that Commissioner Cutshall will be obtaining a bid on.

Commissioner Boyer reported that Planning and Zoning needs an alternate.  Mr. Jeff Crum agreed to become the alternate and can do it full time if needed.

Burgess Rittelmeyer opened discussion on the safety of the slurry seal product that was used on the streets. This was a question he was asked during the July town meeting. It is totally safe and is used by Frederick County on streets just outside the town limits.  Commissioner Boyer reported it is a water-based product that passes MDE standards.

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