Hagerstown Mayor and Council hold regular session tonight

November 23 — A regular session will be held at 7 p.m. tonight for Hagerstown Mayor and City Council in Council Chambers at 1 E. Franklin Street in Hagerstown.

The meeting can also be viewed on the City’s YouTube or Facebook page.

Public comment will be held both the beginning and end of the meeting.

Wes Decker, Communications Officer for the City of Hagerstown, joined Pat Ryan and Michele Jansen this morning on First News for a preview of the meeting tonight.

There will be 13 consent agenda items, four unfinished business items and 11 under new business.

One will be the authorization of the sale of the property at 25 West Church Street, which is where City Farmers’ Market is currently located.

Decker assured, “There will be more discussions in the meetings ahead about where the market will go from here. The market is not going away. Some people have been a little confused by this because that property’s being sold. It will not go away. There will be a new location. That has not been decided yet, but certainly the public will be able to see, hear and potentially weigh in on where that might be.”

Resolutions for the agreement for public art projects will also be on the agenda. A mural will go in on West Washington Street as well as Lee Street.

The Lee Street mural will be done in powder coated metal.

Mayor and Council will also be approving new Faces of Hagerstown photos on the cultural trail.

Mayor and Council will also vote for a bump up in the budget for Imagine Hagerstown from $36,000 to $44,000.
