Funkstown Council discusses road woes

January 10, 2007|by KAREN HANNA

FUNKSTOWN - Road disrepair is becoming a "safety issue" in some parts of Funkstown, Town Councilman John W. Phillips III said in comments toward the end of Monday's meeting.

An overlay will not help some roads, said Phillips, who agreed to look at roads' conditions prior to budget discussions.

Assistant Mayor Paul N. Crampton Jr. said funding for road projects has dried up in recent years.

"Well, the only thing we can do is put it back in the budget, and that's not going to be an easy thing to do with the sewer project," Crampton said.

The town is building a new wastewater treatment plant, which Town Clerk Clerk/Treasurer/Tax Collector Brenda L. Haynes has said could be finished very late this year.

Crampton said the town repaved all of its roads about six years ago. Both residents in attendance said their roads had not been paved in more than a decade.
