The Washington County Sports Foundation has met its $500,000 fund-raising goal for an ice rink to be built at the Hagerstown Fairgrounds, but will probably need more money, the foundation's director said Tuesday.
The cost of the rink has increased from $1.7 million to $1.98 million because the proposed rink's location was shifted slightly so it would be less intrusive to a residential neighbor, said Director Walter Dill.
Hagerstown City Council members might vote next Tuesday on whether to approve agreements, including a lease, with the foundation.
The city is supposed to fund up to 70 percent, or $1.2 million, of the rink project, according to an agreement in principle with the foundation.
