For some people, Wednesday's spectacular October weather made it the perfect day to go boating or fishing. For DFC Will Muller, it was a great day to issue Town of Port Deposit citations. In a short time, the deputy, who volunteers to do extra patrols as a contract employee for the town, had written four tickets, all for parking in Marina Park without having the sticker indicating that they had paid the parking fee. Muller said people had fishing licenses and most had the proper boat parking sticker.
He also talked about working in weather that's not necessarily season-appropriate. "I always answer a lot of questions when I'm working down here. I like the community contact and small town policing," said DFC Muller. "I give a lot of directions. And people ask for recommendations where they should eat. I love working in Port Deposit. Of all the towns, it's my favorite."
In other business from Port Deposit:
• The town used a new firm for the annual audit. They passed.
• Due to health issues for former town maintenance staffer Walter Krause, the town is seeking someone to fill his shoes. The search is on for a maintenance staffer who will do parks and building maintenance, refuse collection, street cleaning, snow removal, grass cutting, and more.
