Town annexes more than 30 acres

BOONSBORO - Boonsboro's town limits grew by more than 30 acres Monday.

The Town Council unanimously approved a resolution to annex 10 properties totaling 32.49 acres along South Main Street, just north of Rohrersville Road (Md. 67).

The annexation brings a pumping station and a bank into the town's limits, officials said.

The town held a public hearing on the annexation last month. There were no objections to the town's proposal during the hearing, Town Manager John L. Kendall said.

Two police SUVs being purchased

BOONSBORO - The Town of Boonsboro will buy two police vehicles, town officials announced Monday.

The Town Council approved Boonsboro Police Chief Jeff Hewett's request to purchase two sport utility vehicles priced at $19,288 each. They also agreed to sell the department's 1999 Crown Victoria.


The car has more than 120,000 miles and is in need of repair, said Mayor Charles F. "Skip" Kauffman.

Deadline for candidates nears

BOONSBORO - Those wishing to run in Boonsboro's spring elections have less than a week to apply, town officials announced Monday.

The deadline for the town's May elections is April 10, Mayor Charles F. "Skip" Kauffman said during the town's monthly meeting.

Four council seats, including the treasurer and assistant mayor, are up for election.

Officials from the town would not say who had filed for candidacy but said all five members up for re-election - Assistant Mayor Howard W. Long, Treasurer Richard E. Hawkins and Councilmen Kevin M. Chambers, Raymond D. Grove and Raymond Hoffman - picked up packets.

The people who fill those positions are paid $1,200 a year.
