Developers would pay for town engineer

BOONSBORO - Developers would have to put up money in advance for a town engineer to review building plans, under a resolution introduced at Tuesday's Boonsboro Town Council meeting.

A developer's escrow account, if necessary, would have $1,000.

Town Manager Debra Smith said the town has been covering the upfront costs of engineering reviews.

The council unanimously voted in favor of the resolution, which must be approved in a second vote before it can take effect.

Town to request money for project

BOONSBORO - The town is scheduled to make a request for Program Open Space money from Washington County on Thursday, Councilman Richard Hawkins said Tuesday.

The town is working on the first phase of a park expansion project, which would include sports fields, road improvements and restrooms.

Hawkins said an early estimate for the work was $2.6 million, but the town is trying to lower the cost to about $1.2 million.

Maryland Program Open Space money, which the county administers, would help pay for the work.
