Like many small towns, Funkstown is making do in a tight economy as town officials try not to raise property tax rates and cut back on regular infrastructure upgrades such as milling and paving some streets every year. Mayor Paul N. Crampton Jr. said Town Clerk/Treasurer Brenda Haynes does a good job seeking and applying for grants to help the town pay for projects such as the sewer treatment plant that, according to Maryland Environmental Service, went online in June 2008. But in tight times such as these, there are areas in which the town government has to scale back.

FUNKSTOWN -- A 6-foot privacy fence might be installed at Joker's Pub & Grill to close off its second entrance and provide an enclosed outdoor patio, Funkstown Mayor Paul N. Crampton Jr. said Monday night. The issue came up at the mayor and council work session because the steps are in the town's right-of-way so the business needs an easement from the town for the fence, Crampton said. Crampton asked Town Clerk/Treasurer Brenda L. Haynes to see if anything was needed from the Washington County liquor board or fire marshal's offices before the council makes a decision.

WILLIAMSPORT - Several construction projects will be going on this year in Williamsport, including improvements at Riverbottom Park and Byron Memorial Park. Town Clerk/Treasurer Donnie Stotelmyer is hoping to get the boat ramp at Riverbottom Park rebuilt by spring so it won't interfere with the boating season. The ramp needs to be steeper. He's also hoping to add trees to the shoreline and improve the parking area in 2010. Town officials also are considering getting a floatable dock for the ramp that can be removed if the Potomac River floods, Stotelmyer said.
