Residents 'elated' about paving
BOONSBORO - Paving on Main Street is finished, Town Manager John Kendall said Monday.
Residents have called Town Hall with "elation" that the road renovation is virtually complete, he said.
Yellow striping in the middle of the road was completed Monday and side striping may be done today, Kendall said.
Street signs have not yet been put up and some landscaping is left to be done.
Kendall told the Town Council that several streetlights are not level and will have to be fixed. He suggested paying Dixie Electric of Frederick, Md., up to $3,970 to grout.
Councilman Ray Grove balked. He said the town should ask the company that installed the lights to fix them.
Other council members agreed and tabled the proposal to hire Dixie Electric.
Part-time worker to assist at park
BOONSBORO - The Town Council unanimously agreed Monday to hire a part-time employee to work in the park for $6 an hour.
