Town awaiting list for water bill credits

SHARPSBURG - Sharpsburg Mayor Hal Spielman said Monday that he hopes Washington County water and sewer customers within town limits will get their bill credits on the first bill of 2005.

The county is mailing a list of customers in the area to the town so town officials can mark which ones live within town limits, Spielman said after Monday night's mayor and Town Council meeting.

The town has $18,000 budgeted to give town residents the credit.

The town has been helping residents with the bill ever since the county dramatically raised rates several years ago.

Memorial Day Parade committee to meet

Scouts may be asked to help with signs

SHARPSBURG - The new stop signs have been sitting still.

Sharpsburg Mayor Hal Spielman said he hasn't put up the new stop signs yet. Spielman said he might ask a local Boy Scout troop to help him install the signs, which are to replace faded ones.


Town's streets won't be repaved this year

SHARPSBURG - Sharpsburg's streets won't get repaved this year.

Craig Paving Inc. won't be able to repave municipalities' streets before winter, Mayor Hal Spielman said Monday.

The overlay contract is good to July 2005, Spielman said. The mayor said he will probably talk to Craig Paving officials in March or April about when the town roads will be done.

The town just has a few areas to be repaved.
