July 06, 2005

BOONSBORO - Mayor Charles F. "Skip" Kauffman Jr. announced Tuesday night that $75,000 in Project Open Space money has been secured to further pay off the $600,000 spent five or six years ago to purchase the King farmland adjacent to Shafer Park.

"The Washington County Commissioners have been true to their word," Kauffman said. "We have recovered about 95 percent of that money."

Efforts are under way to obtain money to develop that land, Kauffman said.
