Clear Spring's rebate $2,000

March 17, 1999

CLEAR SPRING - Clear Spring will receive a $2,000 tax rebate from Washington County in fiscal 1999, the same amount the town received last year.

The Washington County Commissioners met with Clear Spring officials during a council meeting Tuesday night to present a report on the rebate.

The rebate money was not earmarked for any special project.

"There's nothing planned, it will go into the general fund," said Vice Mayor Julianna Albowicz.

The town will get the least amount of all the county's municipalities because it does not have its own police force or park and has the smallest population.

According to 1990 census figures, Clear Spring has 415 residents.

The City of Hagerstown, with 35,445 residents, has the highest population and its own police force, among other things. It received a $856,511 rebate.


The tax rebate from the county partially reimburses municipalities for police, parks and road services they provide.

Clear Spring's $2,000 tax rebate is subject to final approval after the county's budget is audited in June.

After the presentation, Albowicz provided the commissioners with a brief report on the town's continuing street and sewer upgrade projects.
