BOONSBORO - The town of Boonsboro ended its budget year with a $122,000 surplus, said Mayor Charles F. "Skip" Kauffman Jr.
But that money was quickly spent on park equipment, a park bridge, storm drain work and a new police cruiser, he said.
Revenues were $778,000 and expenses were $656,000. The general fund has eight months worth of operating expenses, which auditors said was "very, very healthy," Kauffman said.

Signs to be cleaned at Shafer Memorial Park
BOONSBORO - Entrance signs at Shafer Memorial Park have been taken down to be cleaned.
Cedar Lawn Memorial Park Inc. will restore and protect the signs at a cost of $790, said Town Manager Jake Jones.
The signs probably have not been cleaned since the park was dedicated in the late 1930s, said Councilman Richard Gross.
Parking may be restricted on St. Paul St.
BOONSBORO - Parking on St. Paul Street will probably have to be restricted to one side of the street, said Mayor Charles F. "Skip" Kauffman Jr.
Emergency crews have a hard time navigating the narrow road when cars are parked on both sides, he said.
The neighbors are being surveyed to find the best solution. Parking may be alternated from side to side or restricted on one side at all times, he said.
