Due to vacations, the August Mayor and Council meeting has been cancelled. The next meeting will be held on September 12, 2016.
The Skunks are going to add another year to their roster
as this past Sunday they took home the State championship
for the second year in a row. Way to go Skunks!
In response to the Confederate Flags in Town. The Town of Funkstown has the Confederate Flags throughout the Town because this is the weekend of the Re-enactment of the Battle of Funkstown. Groups come from all over the United States to participate in the Battle.
The Town of Funkstown does not endorse controversy, but the Battle is a part of living history. It would be a disservice to the participants and to the spectators to not properly represent a part of history, and the Confederate Flag is a part of the Battle of Funkstown history.
When the event is over this weekend, the flags will be taken down.
Paul Crampton, Jr.

Any person that lives in town may apply to become a member of the planning commission. Just contact The office for the details as we are currently in need of 3 members.
Like all towns around the country are doing today Funkstown pays homage to the men and women that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our county. These fine people gave their lives so that we are free. Free to vote, Free to travel, Free voice your opinion and it is clear that Funkstown’s opinion is that veterans are great people. When you get a chance, Thank a veteran for their service to our country, because freedom is not FREE!!
