Washington St. & West St. Shepherdstown Council Gets "Break" +With Cookies Served; Face Problem Of Pleming EPA The Shepherdstown Town Council, generally facing nothing but problems, got a surprise Tuesday evening. At the start of the meeting, Girl Scout and Brownie troops from Shepherdstown trooped into the council chambers and presented cookies to the surprised town athers. But then, it was get down to business as D. Lee Morgan, local builder, asked council to take some action so that he might be paid $20,000 for the construction of the water works building. It was explained that Morgan has not been paid because the Environmental Protection Agency is holding up its grant for the project because of a design problem. That problem concerns whether or not a "muffler" should be inside or outside the building. The epa says it should be inside. Efforts are being made to correct the problem and guarantee payment to all involved. Passed through two readings were ordinances providing for budget ad- justments to meet increased expenses in the law en- forcement area, the purchase of supplies and the renovation of town hall. It was noted that collections from town funds and from parking meters is better than originally estimated. The council agreed to work with the Department of Welfare in establishing a work incentive program that would provide the town with a number of part time em- ployees, paid by Welfare., Mayor John Farrier was in- structed to work out details of the agreement. There was a discussion of the possibility of establishing a Farmer's Market in Shepherdstown during the coming growing season. No Canclusion was reached, with council preferring TO think all t about the ramifications of such a move before acting. And finally, council was told that new officers have been selected by the town's Water and Sewer Board. Donald Shaw will serve as chairman, Archibald R. Hoxton HI will he secretary.
