Most streets in Funkstown clear despite plow failure

FUNKSTOWN - Even though the town's only snowplow broke down, most streets in this small community southeast of Hagerstown were clear by Tuesday, town officials said.

"It cost $1,100 to fix the pickup truck-mounted plow," Town Clerk Brenda Haynes said.

Once it was back in working order, the plow was again tackling the snow-packed streets within the town limits.

The town's other piece of snow-removal equipment- a dump truck - also failed during the storm and probably won't be repaired, Haynes said.

Haynes said two town employees - Roger Griffith, Funkstown maintenance supervisor, and Steven Saccone Jr., wastewater treatment plant operator - handled the bulk of the snow removal duties.

"We did get some help from citizens who cleared the sidewalks by Town Hall and the town's parking lot," Haynes said.

The snow removal efforts began Saturday night and continued through Tuesday, Haynes said.

"We just doing some touch-up work today," Haynes said Tuesday. "Residents have really been cooperating."
