Town council approves transfer of funds

CLEAR SPRING -- The Town of Clear Spring will transfer about $199,000 from its account at M&T Bank to a new account at PNC Bank.

On Monday, the Town Council voted 3-0 to make the transfer.

The town has about $200,000 at M&T Bank, but will transfer $199,000 because PNC offers better services, Mayor Paul D. Hose Jr. said.

Town officials will keep about $1,000 in a secondary account at M&T, Hose said. The money should be transferred within the next few weeks.


Water line work planned on U.S. 40

CLEAR SPRING -- Work to replace a water line under U.S. 40 just west of Clear Spring should begin later this week, town officials said Monday.

Councilman Theodore Hovermale said traffic won't be disrupted because workers will bore under the road to install the water line.

He said the work should take a few weeks to complete.

Town officials won't know the cost of the project until an assessment can be made after the works begins, Mayor Paul D. Hose Jr. said.

The water line will serve five houses west of town, Hose said.
