Recycling proposal shot down

CLEAR SPRING -- The Town of Clear Spring won't participate in a mandatory recycling program.

On Monday, the Town Council shot down a proposal that would have charged homeowners $8.93 per month for a contractor to pick up glass and plastic bottles, and aluminum and steel containers.

The council agreed it wouldn't make recycling mandatory until the Washington County Commissioners issue the order to do so.

"I can't see charging anyone anything else," Mayor Paul D. Hose Jr. said.

Hose said residents may drop off their recycling at the county-operated bin in Clear Spring Park.

Council approves budget

CLEAR SPRING -- The Clear Spring Town Council on Monday approved the town's $525,830 budget for fiscal year 2009-10.

The budget for fiscal year 2008-09, which ends June 30, is $660,088.

Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said the budget for fiscal year 2008-09 is higher because it includes a $158,400 payment the town received to provide water and sewer service to the newly constructed Sleep Inn at 12426 Houck Ave.
