The next Shepherdstown Town Council meeting is set for Tuesday, March 10, at 6:30 p.m. at Town Hall, 104 N. King St.

Mayor Jim Auxer is expected to announce the resignation of Town Recorder Lance Dom and the official appointment of an acting recorder.

Dom reportedly has moved just outside the town limits, which means he is no longer eligible to serve on the Town Council.

Before the resignation is official, each member of the Council will receive a copy of the resignation letter and will then vote on the acceptance of these changes. Dom had not returned a phone message about his resignation by presstime.

In addition, the Mayor plans to discuss the receipt of an $8,400 Historic Preservation grant to be used for the Shepherdstown Survey Update.

A Shepherdstown Rotary Club representative is expected to report on a proposed parks project discussed during the town’s Parks & Recreation Committee meeting Feb. 24.

The club is hoping to initiate a clean-up and beautification process of Rumsey Monument Park off Mill Street. This is an opportunity for residents to gain more insight into the upcoming project.

Under new business, the Council will be discussing and voting on the proposal of an event named “Freedom’s Race.” This event would be a “Run for Health and Heritage Marathon” and would take place Oct. 3, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to the agenda.

Other items on the agenda include reports from the Finance Committee, the Parking Review Committee, the Streetscape Committee, the Police Committee and the Building Commission.

As always, residents who have registered to address the Town Council will have the opportunity to do so at the beginning of the meeting.
