Each year Keedysville and Sharpsburg use property tax rebate money awarded by the county and budgets matching funds to pay for one Washington County Sheriff resident deputy to patrol both towns.

The Washington County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association asked the Washington County Commissioners Tuesday night to pay $225,000 for a retirement program for 25-year volunteers. The program, which the association had requested previously, would give monthly checks of up to $350 to volunteer firefighters with more than 25 years of active service after they reach age 65. Under the proposal, the retirement program would cost about $7.4 million over 20 years. Up to 15 years of service would be grandfathered in to existing firefighters, so the first payments would be at least 10 years away.
