Funkstown to be represented at meetings

FUNKSTOWN - Funkstown will start sending representatives to two bimonthly meetings being held among local government officials.

Councilwoman Sharon Chirgott said she would attend Community Outreach meetings, which are held every other month.

The group consists of representatives from local town governments and public safety agencies such as law enforcement agencies, Washington County Emergency Services, and the State's Attorney's office, according to an e-mail list. At least one neighborhood watch group has a representative attend.

The next meeting is April 8 at the new 911 center, according to an e-mail about the meeting.

Assistant Mayor Paul N. Crampton Jr. and Town Clerk/Treasurer Brenda Haynes will attend a meeting for a new group, the Council of Governments, Haynes said Thursday. The meeting date was not known, but that group also will meet bimonthly, Haynes said.

That group consists of representatives of Washington County and town governments, Haynes said.


Downtown Funkstown's sign rules to be reviewed

FUNKSTOWN - The size and number of signs that can be posted in Funkstown's historic town center will be reviewed by the town's zoning administrator, Town Clerk/Treasurer Brenda Haynes said Thursday.

Councilman Kim Ramer raised the issue at a March 29 work session.

Haynes said the town's zoning ordinance does have sign regulations.

Chestnut Street parking to be restricted

FUNKSTOWN - No parking will be allowed along the south side of Chestnut street from the Town Hall parking lot to the stop sign at High Street, Town Clerk/Treasurer Brenda Haynes said.

Town officials decided at a March 29 work session to have the curb painted red to prevent parking and improve visibility for drivers pulling out of the lot onto eastbound Chestnut.

The snow plow driver couldn't turn right from the parking lot, Haynes said Thursday. Often there is a vehicle parked to the east of the lot entrance, she said.
