SMITHSBURG -- The August reappointment of Smithsburg Mayor Mildred "Mickey" Myers' husband to the town board of zoning appeals came up again at Tuesday's town council meeting.
At the Aug. 6 meeting, councilmembers Tom Chiarizia and Shirley Aurand voted in favor of Homer Myers' reappointment while Donnie Souders Jr. and Dennis "Jack" Wenthe voted against it. The mayor cast the tiebreaking vote in favor of her husband's reappointment.
Councilman Jerome Martin, who previously had spoken out against the reappointment, was not at the August meeting because of an injury.
The mayor said in August she felt conflicted about casting a vote on the issue, but she decided to do so because of a pressing need for a fifth member.
