Election Results
 
Mayor Staley re-elected in a very close race.
Standley Parten - Post One
Polly Garlington - Post 3
All will be sworn in on January 4, 2016
Local business owner has been denied a place on the agenda for July Town Council Meeting. 
 
 He was also denied a place on the agenda in June.  Another interesting development is that the town officials have a police officer present at the June meeting.  One has to wonder the reason...unless the Mayor can't control a meeting with four or five people present! 
 
Newest info is about
Briarwood Commons
 which has it's own link on the menu to the right.

Sharpsburg Town Council Meeting
April 6, 2015
 

Quite an interesting Sharpsburg Town Council meeting Monday night and certainly not dull! 


David Mullins, long-time resident, had a lot of questions about why the town has so many run down houses when there are Building Codes for dealing with such problems. Mr. Mullins suggested that the Mayor and Council spend more time dealing with this problem. The questions went unanswered. Mr. Mullins is the former Mayor of Sharpsburg and served on the Town Council for many years.

Polly Garlington, long-time resident, had questions about the process when property is rezoned or annexed. Sharpsburg has no Planning and Zoning Committee.  Most questions were answered.

Garlington requested that special hearings be held when the Briarwood Commons proposal is submitted. Garlington suggested that this would alleviate the problem stated by Donna Camp, Town Clerk, when Ms. Camp said most people attending Public Hearings did not know the facts.

 Mrs. Garlington repeated the request for an information session before the Public Hearings regarding Briarwood Commons to show a willingness  for open communication between the Council, residents and merchants.

 

Frigid Frog is, at last, legitimate! Welcome Frigid Frog. Two Turin Council Members were in attendance as well as Eric Richards, local photographer....Par Excellence!.
