Questions raised about Habitat duplex

October 05, 2004|by SCOTT BUTKI

BOONSBORO - A Boonsboro resident raised questions Monday at a Town Council meeting about a duplex being constructed by Habitat for Humanity of Washington County.

Town Manager John Kendall said he could not answer all of the questions posed by Karen Shifler, but said he would try to respond more fully at a council meeting scheduled for Oct. 25.

Shifler lives on Lakin Avenue, near the construction site. She asked for details about the storm-water management plans for the duplex that would front on an alley off St. Paul Street.

Kendall said the Washington County government approved the plans, but he did not have details with him at Monday's meeting.

Shifler also asked if anyone is monitoring construction of the duplex. Kendall said a county inspector has been tracking its progress, as has he.

Sherry Brown Cooper, executive director for Habitat for Humanity of Washington County, later said construction of the duplex is scheduled to be finished by Christmas.

A Washington County Circuit judge on June 11 granted Shifler a temporary restraining order blocking Habitat for Humanity from starting construction.

Another judge later vacated that order.
