Sharpsburg briefs 10-8



Efforts to prevent bats from entering the Sharpsburg railroad station are complete, Council member Denise Troxell told the Town Council at its Monday meeting.

The town budgeted $1,900 to have the building repaired and to remove bat feces.

"The bats are gone. The insulation has been torn out and we're ready to work," Troxell said of the renovation project.

Sharpsburg Town Council appointed alternate members to the town Zoning Appeals Board Monday.

Named to the board were Paul Brietenbach, Scott Silvert, Tracy Kretzer and Mike Pasquerette.

The appointments now give the town a pool of eight board members to call when there is a zoning appeal.

The board must have three members to hear an appeal.

Sharpsburg's town square will have six Christmas trees for the holiday season - probably one for each grade at Sharpsburg Elementary School.

Council member Diane Troxell said students in each grade at the elementary school will be making ornaments for the trees. Originally, the town council planned to have five trees, but added a sixth because of the response from the elementary school.

The students are scheduled to decorate the trees in two shifts on Dec. 1. The rain date is Dec. 8.

A bulk trash pickup will be Oct. 26 and a bulk yard waste pickup will be Nov. 4 for all Sharpsburg residents. Trash should be placed curbside for pick up.
