SHARPSBURG - The Sharpsburg Town Council voted Monday night to spend $1,000 to crack down on speeding through the town.
The only way to stop speeding on Main Street is to step up enforcement, Mayor George Kesler told the council.
But that extra enforcement will cost the town $16 an hour for additional deputy time, Kesler said.
Acting on a motion from Councilman Russell Weaver, the council voted to earmark $1,000 for extra police patrols during a 30-day period.
Scheduling of the speeding patrols will depend on when the Washington County Sheriff's Department determines they are most needed, Kesler said.
