Developer gets OK to build 104 homes
BOONSBORO — The Boonsboro Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a resolution allowing a developer known as King Road Associates to proceed with phase one of a development in the southwest part of town.

Phase one includes the construction of 104 single-family homes and the extension of Monument Drive to South Main Street, Town Planner Megan Clark said.

When land for the development was annexed into the town, a clause in the annexation agreement said the mayor and council would have to authorize the start of development and amend the agreement to reflect that approval, Clark said.

Boonsboro gets Banner Town designation
BOONSBORO — For the first time, Boonsboro has been designated a Banner Town by the Maryland Municipal League in recognition of the town’s extensive participation in MML programs and activities, Assistant Mayor Howard Long announced Tuesday.

The town received a banner, which will be displayed in the community center, and a plaque, which will be hung in town hall.

Boonsboro Mayor Charles “Skip” Kauffman Jr. said in previous years, the town likely met all the requirements for the designation but had not filled out the necessary documentation.

Economic Development Commission appointments made
BOONSBORO — The Boonsboro Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve four reappointments and one new appointment to the Boonsboro Economic Development Commission.

Vicki Messner, Bruce Wilder, Doug Bast and Cristen Moss were reappointed, and Carol Blessing, owner of Green Bamboo Quality Skin Care, was appointed.

The town also has two openings on its Police and Public Safety Commission. The commission will consider potential appointees at its July 14 meeting, Town Council Member Janeen Solberg said.

Town police care for sale
BOONSBORO — The Boonsboro Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday to offer a 1997 Ford Crown Victoria for sale by sealed bid.

The vehicle is a Boonsboro Police Department cruiser that has been replaced, Police Chief Jeff Hewett said. The car has about 147,000 miles on it, is in good shape and will be sold as-is, Hewett said.
