Council considers moving monument

KEEDYSVILLE - Town Council discussed plans to move a World War II monument from Mount Heburn Road to the town park during Monday's council meeting.

Assistant Mayor Matt Hull said the monument is atop a cistern, which is deteriorating. Hull said town officials want to move the monument for safety reasons and place it near the town's World War I and Korean War monuments.

Hull estimated that it wouldn't cost much to move the monument.

Meeting schedule may be changed

KEEDYSVILLE - The Town's Planning and Zoning Commission meeting night may be changed, Assistant Mayor Matt Hull said.

Hull said the Planning and Zoning Commission currently meets at 7 p.m. on the second Monday of each month, which conflicts with some members' schedules.


The new date and time has not been set, Hull said.

Open Space funds expected for park

KEEDYSVILLE - The town is expected to receive Program Open Space money to put new restrooms in the town park, Mayor Lee Brandenburg said at Monday night's meeting.

Brandenburg said the project will be put out to bid.

Pigeon coop slated to be torn down

KEEDYSVILLE - An old pigeon coop near the Keedysville Library/Town Hall will be torn down soon, Mayor Lee Brandenburg said.

The coop will be wet down first to keep dust from flying and then will be torn down, Brandenburg said.

Ex-councilwoman raises several issues

KEEDYSVILLE - Former Town Councilwoman Yvonne Hope raised several issues at Monday night's Town Council meeting:

-- Hope said she is bothered by the number of barking dogs in town. Mayor Lee Brandenburg suggested she contact the Washington County Humane Society.

-- Hope questioned the town's policy on setbacks because she's noticed residents building to the edge of their properties to the rear of North Main Street. Hope said if people don't observe setback rules, it obstructs traffic.

Brandenburg told Hope that the town has setback rules and he would take a drive and check it out.

-- Hope wondered why older residents of the town have yet to visit her business, Full Circle restaurant, at 38 N. Main St.

Outgoing councilman attends meeting

KEEDYSVILLE - Outgoing Town Council member James Kerns, who had major surgery for a heart problem last month, attended Monday night's Town Council meeting.

Already back to work, Kerns said, "It's been four weeks."
