Town to increase tapping fee for water

BOONSBORO - The Boonsboro Town Council voted Monday to increase its tapping fee for some future property owners.

Prior to its 7 p.m. council meeting, the council held a 6:30 p.m. public hearing on the resolution to increase the rates.

However, nobody spoke at the public hearing.

The resolution was introduced at the council's Feb. 3 meeting.

The fee is charged when the town connects a property to the town's water system, Town Manager John Kendall said.

The town is proposing increasing the tapping fee for townhouses from $3,750 to $5,000, he said.

The change was effective upon its passage Monday night.

Town lifts limit on Parks Board terms

BOONSBORO - The Boonsboro Town Council passed a resolution Monday removing a ban on how long someone can serve on the Boonsboro Parks Board.


In 1988, the council changed its rules to prohibit someone from serving more than two four-year terms on the board, Town Manager John Kendall said.

Volunteer George Metz has served on the board for two terms and has offered to be reappointed.

Nobody else has volunteered to take his place, Town Manager John Kendall said.

Monday's action will allow Metz to serve again.
