Little League gets $32,000 loan

April 06, 2009

BOONSBORO -- The Boonsboro Town Council Monday night decided to give a $32,000 loan to the South Mountain Little League for improvements to a senior division field on Monroe Road.

The South Mountain Little League already owed the council $6,000 it borrowed for new lights at the baseball field, Mayor Charles F. "Skip" Kauffman Jr. said.

The little league organization then wanted $26,000 for a new fence and a backstop for a senior division field, Kauffman said.

Town council members agreed to combine the outstanding $6,000 with the $26,000 request for a $32,000 loan to the South Mountain Little League.

The loan will be interest free for five years, Kauffman said.

Although there was discussion at Monday night's council meeting about the town being supportive of local youths, there was also a suggestion that the South Mountain Little League try to obtain funding help from the towns of Sharpsburg and Keedysville and the Washington County Gaming Commission.

The more money the little league can obtain elsewhere, the easier it will be to pay the loan, Kauffman said.
