Snow removal costs town $9,125

SHARPSBURG - The Town of Sharpsburg had to shell out $9,125 for snow removal following the President's Day weekend snowstorm, Mayor Hal Spielman said.

The town normally hires a contractor only to clear alleys, if anything, but the storm was so big that the town required help clearing main intersections and hauling away snow, Spielman said.

State Highway Administration plows clear Sharpsburg Pike (Md. 65) and Shepherdstown Pike (Md. 34), Spielman said. Washington County Highway Department plows usually clear the side streets but due to equipment breakdown and a busy schedule, the town required extra help, he said.

Besides clearing main intersections, including Town Square, snow was hauled away from Main Street, Spielman said.

The snow was dumped near Town Pond and at the Little League field, he said.

Spielman said the cost will come out of the town's reserve fund.
