Election requirements, how to break an election tie and firing a council member were among the issues raised this week as the Hancock Town Council discussed possible changes to the town charter. One election requirement, that council members running for mayor first resign their seats, came up in January's municipal election. Two councilmen, Nigel Dardar and Tim Smith resigned their seats to run against incumbent Mayor Daniel Murphy. That might not be the case in the future, at least for a person in Dardar's position, whose four-year council term was about to expire.

Mayor Daniel Murphy gave an encouraging report Tuesday night about business growth in town but asked county officials for help in bringing back another business and pitched an idea for a new library. Evolve Composites, which manufactures heating and air-conditioning condenser pads, Handi-Block lightweight deck piers and other products, has moved into the former Fleetwood building. Murphy said the company has been doing well and is expected to increase its work shifts. Also, local businessman Jerry Spessard has invented a device that automatically will call balls and strikes at home plate in baseball games and he plans to start manufacturing the devices in a building next to Evolve Composites, Murphy told the Washington County Board of Commissioners during a meeting at town hall.
