SHARPSBURG - The mayor of Sharpsburg did not violate town zoning laws by operating a "fast-food" service, Town Attorney Charles Wagaman said Monday night.
Mayor George Kesler's Sharpsburg General Store cannot be considered a fast-food restaurant because it isn't a restaurant, Wagaman said.
The store, which sells mostly food and groceries, also sells carry-out.
Kesler had asked Wagaman to review a zoning complaint by former Mayor Ron Milburn concerning the general store as well as other zoning complaints involving Town Council members.
Milburn had questioned why Kesler was allowed to run a "fast-food" operation when a zoning request made last November to open a pizza and sub shop in a building owned by Milburn had been rejected.
