November 16, 1995|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,SUN STAFF

A 26-year-old Shiloh Run homeowner was sworn in late Tuesday to fill the vacant seat on the Hampstead Town Council.

David E. Bredenburg was appointed by the council to serve out the term of Jacqueline Hyatt, a four-year councilwoman who resigned Oct. 10. Ms. Hyatt essentially had agreed with the council's "slow-growth" agenda but not necessarily with members' aggressive pursuit of that agenda.

The newest councilman said yesterday that he shares the council's concerns about rapid growth outpacing the town's ability to provide adequate facilities, such as sufficient water and waste treatment.

Mr. Bredenburg also said he brings to the council representation from another part of town, where he is president of the Shiloh Run homeowners' association.

"I didn't plan on this [political role], but I am looking forward to serving until 1997," he said. "I don't know if I will run for election then or not, but I am happy to have the opportunity to give something back to the community where I grew up and was educated."

Mr. Bredenburg earned a degree in business administration at Towson State University. He is a branch manager of Loyola Federal Savings Bank in Baltimore.

Mr. Bredenburg said he wants to become more involved with the Hampstead Business Association. Main Street is the gateway to the northern part of the county and to southern Pennsylvania, he said.

"The Main Street business owners are the ones who have invested their own money [in the town]," he said. "They can better tell us their problems, what help they may need. The council can do a lot of things to help alleviate those problems."

In other business Tuesday night, the Hampstead Town Council appointed Wendy Martin and Vincent Corsaro to the Board of Zoning Appeals, and Steven B. Harmon to the Ethics Commission.
