June 15, 1994

The Taneytown City Council awarded contracts for variou services in the city streets and the Taneytown Memorial Park, said City Manager John L. Kendall.

Stambaugh's Inc. will pave and patch several streets around the city. Repairs to the roadways -- many of which were badly damaged by the harsh winter weather -- will cost about $52,000.

The city awarded a street sweeping contract to Industrial Services. The Woodsboro company will do the job for $50 an hour, but the number of streets and the frequency of the cleanings have not been determined.

Various repairs to pavilions at Memorial Park will be done by Garry Haines, whose handwritten bid of $3,000 was selected by the city council. One of the pavilions needs a new roof, and another has posts that are rotted out. Some masonry work also needs to be done.

The city also awarded an $1,100 contract for maintenance to the city's parking meters to Booher and Associates of Littlestown, -- Pa.
