Hampstead may get $2,800 for snow cleanup

Hampstead has applied for federal assistance to pay the costs of digging out after the Blizzard of 1993.

Town Manager John A. Riley said that he expects Hampstead will receive about $2,800 in federal assistance for snow removal.

The money became available when President Clinton declared a state of emergency in Maryland after the March 13 blizzard.

Mr. Riley said disaster assistance money coming to Carroll County is being funneled through the county Civil Defense office. The Hampstead council must enact a formal resolution at its next meeting to designate the county as the town's agent for collecting the money, he said.
