The Sharpsburg police department kept busy in 2013.

The year-end police report cited 4,329 incident reports for the year. Police Chief Leo Rudzki said that is the highest number of reports in the department's history.

The annual report cites “miscellaneous disturbances” as the most frequent call for officers.

James Sharp Landing

A sign for the newly named James Sharp Landing cost the borough $1,670.

Officials approved payment to Gray Sign Advertising on Monday. The area is off of 13th Street and includes a fishing pier that is accessible to people with disabilities. A contest to select a name was held during the borough's annual Guyasuta Days Festival.

Consolidating committees

Sharpsburg officials plan to streamline their committees in the new year.

Officials will combine the fire and police committees into one public-safety committee, add the water committee to the public-works committee, and create a zoning and planning committee.

“The plan of action would be consolidate and maybe modernize our committees,” Councilman Matthew Rudzki said.

The finance committee and personnel committees would stay the same.

The health and recreation committee will be renamed “health and property.”

Next meeting

The next council meeting is scheduled 6:30 p.m. Jan. 16 at the borough building on Main Street.
