Town officials have said windows need to be replaced at the 30 E. Baltimore St. building and the roof is in bad shape. Mayor Paul N. Crampton Jr. said a separate fund should be set up for people who want to make donations.

CLEAR SPRING -- The Clear Spring Town Council is awaiting results from a recent energy audit before it spends federal grant money to upgrade town hall. Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said a home performance analyst audited the building Sept. 9, identifying repairs that would improve energy consumption. It could take about two weeks to receive the energy audit report, she said. Numerous projects could improve the energy efficiency of the building on U.S. 40, Mayor Paul D. Hose Jr. said.

Funkstown resident Greg Sullivan told Funkstown's mayor and Town Council Monday night the town no longer needed the siren atop Town Hall to alert firefighters because they can be notified by electronic devices such as pagers. Sullivan has three properties in downtown Funkstown, including his home next door to Town Hall, he said after a council meeting. Sullivan said he's been unsuccessful in getting the fire company to stop using the siren, which he described as being at an unhealthy decibel level.

FUNKSTOWN - The Funkstown Mayor and Town Council on Monday decided to repair the bell tower atop Town Hall. Councilman Richard Nigh in January had suggested the option of removing the tower, after Mayor Robert Kline presented a Hagerstown company's repair proposal. The bell tower on Town Hall, a former church, is rotting, said Kline. But the tower is protected as a historic landmark, according to a letter to the Funkstown Planning and Zoning Commission from the Washington County Historic District Commission.

KEEDYSVILLE -- Keedysville is getting a new town hall. The southern Washington County town has agreed to buy a former bank on South Main Street for $225,000 and will move its town hall there in the next month or so, Mayor Matt Hull said. Moving the town hall, which shares space with the town's library at 22 Taylor Drive, has been a priority for town officials for more than a year, Matt Hull said. Hull's wife, Sally, who is the branch manager of the Keedysville Library, said the move will provide more room for books and events in the library.

"This is wonderful," Hilton said as he looked around at the dust covered walls and floors. The sight of the thick wood trim and wainscot wood ceiling inspired Hilton to imagine how grand the meeting room must have appeared.

Shepherdstown's Really, Really Free Market reopened Sunday to wide acclaim from many of its former patrons. However, it was not on the wall in front of McMurran Hall, where it ran for four years, but just around the corner on North King Street, sandwiched between Reynolds Hall and Town Hall. This time around, the market is out of the reaches of Shepherd University. In April, the three-member McMurran Hall board of trustees kicked it off the wall. The board members are appointed by the university to manage McMurran Hall “in the public interest.” The trustees and university officials ruled in April that “The use of the grounds of historic McMurran Hall by the Really, Really Free Market is not in keeping with its institutional polices for use of the facility.” At that time, it had just opened for its fifth season, said Robbie Glenn, 24, a local resident and Shepherd senior, who organized the market with a handful of volunteers in 2007.

About 100 people showed up at Smithsburg Town Hall Thursday night to ask questions similar to those raised in three previous meetings about how proposed county land-use regulations would affect them as property owners. Land-use changes are being proposed for areas around Smithsburg, Boonsboro, Clear Spring and Hancock, because county officials anticipate those towns will see growth in the future. County planner Jill Baker - who has led the four informational meetings in the towns to explain the proposed law changes - said previously that the proposed rezonings would affect areas differently.

Several people showed up at a Boonsboro Town Council meeting Monday night to express concerns about the use of “smart meters” to measure electric use in buildings. One of the people who spoke, Mary Schanno, said smart meters emit microwave radiation and is worried that their use is associated with health complications like insomnia and migraine headaches. Although Schanno said she fears the meters are being used throughout the county, a Potomac Edison official said last week that the local provider is not installing smart meters in its Western Maryland service area.
