Manchester seeks share of blizzard cleanup fund

The town of Manchester is asking for its share of federal snow-clearing money coming to Maryland as a result of President Clinton's designation of the state as a disaster area after the blizzard.

The Manchester Town Council passed an emergency resolution Wednesday designating Carroll County's assistant civil defense director as the town's agent to receive the federal money.

The move allows the town to be reimbursed for 75 percent of what it spent after the storm to clear one lane on each road.

Town Manager Terry Short said he did not know how much money the town could receive. He said the town's road crews spent all of the Saturday and Sunday during the storm working to keep one traffic lane clear.
