Mary Cooper starts her new job this week. Cooper, who formerly worked in Chesapeake City, will begin learning the ropes from retiring Cecilton town administrator Brenda Cochran. Cooper will spend time with both Cochran and town clerk Kim Roland learning their jobs and getting up to speed on Cecilton projects and events.
In other business from Cecilton:
• The water line extension to Pearce Creek project continues. Work crews are ahead of schedule with the project which will continue until 2018. The Maryland Port Authority is funding this work which will double the water users on the Town of Cecilton water system. About 300 new customers will come on line as water only customers.
The Town of Cecilton will also rake in about $6,500 per home in connection fees. Those funds will pay for planned infrastructure upgrades in Cecilton.
