There are six items on the Mayor and City Council work session in Hagerstown this afternoon

October 5 – Hagerstown Mayor and City Council have a relatively light agenda for this afternoon’s work session beginning at 4 p.m. in Council Chambers at 1 E. Franklin Street. The work session can also be viewed on the City’s Facebook or YouTube pages.

Wes Decker, Communications Officer for the City of Hagerstown, joined First News this morning to discuss the agenda.

One item on the agenda is the proclamation for fire prevention month.

Also, Washington County Coalition will be coming in for a discussion about the issues to take to Annapolis in January. Paul Frey, CEO/President of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, and Jim Kercheval, Executive Director of Greater Hagerstown Committee will lead the discussion.

A pump station off of the Dual Highway will be moved because it’s not functioning like it used to and has a little age on it. It will be replaced by a new pump at the new location on Hebb Road.

It’s a $3 million project, but will ultimately be more efficient.

Trick or Treat will be discussed this afternoon as well. The City actually has quite a hand in Trick or Treat and as a result, the information is able to be disseminated to various agencies, like the police as well as parents in City neighborhoods. Trick or Treat will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on October 31.

A proposal for a helicopter at the Vietnam Memorial on South Walnut Street will also be discussed and a High Impact Performance Award presentation will be made to a City staff member.
