Town Council Looks At Summer Paving

Reviews proposed ordinances
By Jean Snyder

McConnellsburg Borough Council members discussed possible summer paving projects for the borough and held further discussion and review of their proposed zoning and land-use ordinances at their regular meeting last Wednesday evening.

The street committee suggested paving for the following portions of streets: East Walnut between 3rd and 4th streets; intersection of East Walnut and 2nd streets; 6th Street to Pine Street; and the intersection of North and 2nd streets to 4th Street.

In other business, the council members met with Steve Thomas of the county’s planning office and further discussed the borough’s proposed zoning and land- use ordinances. It was agreed that the borough will submit the ordinances to its solicitor, Carlton Walker and if she is in agreement and suggests no changes, council will vote on the adoption of the ordinances at its June meeting.

Council also met with local attorney

Stanley Kerlin, who appeared on behalf of an East Market Street property owner regarding a plan to subdivide a lot on the property. Council had already approved the request last year, but needed to give reapproval in order for the plan to be filed at the courthouse. Council agreed to the request with one “no” vote recorded as it was at the previous meeting.

Council also voted to reappoint both D.A. “Andy” Washabaugh and Gene Headley to the borough’s zoning board – Washabaugh for a four-year term and Headley for a two-year term.

During regular business, council also voted to pay McConnellsburg Motor and Implement $197.89 out of the liquid fuel funds for repair to the borough’s tractor.

Regular business

During regular business, council approved payment of April bills in the amount of $9,812.37. Receipts for the same period were $50,692.96. Checks written were $20,012.49, leaving a May 1 balance of $57,320.09.

Council members present were Travis Bard, David Washabaugh, Pat Booth, Pat Frazier, Mack Shaffer, Rick Buterbaugh and Mayor Mike Chilcote.

McConnellsburg Borough Council meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Fulton House. The next regular meeting will be held on June 1, 2011.
