Hearing on loan has no speakers

STRASBURG -- No public comments were offered during a special Town Council meeting Monday night on the approval of a million-dollar loan for costs involved in upgrading a wastewater treatment plant.

The council met before a scheduled finance committee meeting to vote on the matter in the presence of the town's bond attorney, Carolyn Perry of the Botkin Rose law firm.

After a short public hearing, the council voted unanimously, with Councilman Bob Baker absent, to pass an ordinance and resolution authorizing the town to take out the loan, which will be used as interim financing for design costs associated with the project.

Town Manager Judson Rex said that the initial amount sought was $1.3 million, but the project does not require that much financing.

    I missed the notice about a special town council meeting on Monday. Did anyone else know about it, and if so how can I get on whatever list you're on to find these things out.
    All the towns being affected by the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Act, EPA unfunded mandates, should join the American Farm Bureau's lawsuit suing EPA. The more people who point out the unattainable goals of this nonsense the stronger the case will be.
