Council members talked about from which fund the money should be taken to perform the work.

Rain barrels, compost bins being offered at Green Fest
BOONSBORO — Rain barrels and compost bins will be offered for sale during Boonsboro’s Green Fest in Shafer Park on May 7, Boonsboro Town Council member Janeen Solberg said during a town council meeting Monday night.
Rain barrels are used to collect rainwater from houses or other buildings, and compost bins are used to dispose of vegetative matter like leaves or grass clippings from a yard. Compost bins also can be used to dispose of vegetative matter from kitchens.
The bins turn the material into a rich soil.
The rain barrels will be sold for $60 each and the compost bins will be sold for $50 each during Green Fest, which will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Solberg said.
