Carroll Lutheran Village selects 2 new trustees

The Carroll Lutheran Village board of trustees recently had elections and welcomed two new members.

Re-elected to a second three-year term were: R. Wayne Barnes, president of Barnes-Bollinger Insurance; and Thomas J. Zirpoli, president and chief executive officer of Target Community & Educational Services and a Western Maryland College professor.

Newly elected to the board were: Ann H. Deming, former bookkeeper and village resident; Marion Suski, multimedia developer for Bell Atlantic and Friends of the Village vice president; and Arthur Steven Wisner, treasurer/ director of financial services at WMC.

Two ex officio board members are the Rev. Eugene Alexander, pastor of Holy Spirit Lutheran Church and dean of the Westminster Conference of the Delaware/Maryland Synod, and William Richards, president of the Resident Association Council of the Village.

Other officers include Christine Whiteleather, vice chair, and Ferdinand Ruppel, treasurer.

Low ground water levels delay sewage system testing

Ground water levels in Carroll County have caused the Health Department to delay testing of some proposed lots for sewage disposal systems.

Maryland Sewage Disposal and Subdivision regulations require certain soil percolation and other tests to be conducted when the highest water table can be expected in the sewage disposal area.

Levels usually are at their highest between Feb. 1 and April 30. Data currently show below-normal, shallow ground water levels.

The Health Department will delay testing in wet weather soils until shallow water table conditions are more normal.

The exception to this is certain soil series in the northwest area of the county. Monitoring well data for these soils show adequate precipitation. Testing of these soil types may start Tuesday: Penn, Abbottstown, Raritan, Lewisberry and Klinesville. The soils will be re-evaluated on a week-by-week basis.

In the case of other soils, testing may be delayed by at least two weeks, with further delays considered weekly.
