A point person for the City of Hagerstown's special projects will be on the job beginning Monday.
Austin Abraham, the city's new project coordinator, will work on the development of Hagerstown Fairgrounds, parking improvements and joint water and sewer issues with Washington County, City Administrator Bruce Zimmerman said Tuesday.
Abraham, 44, of Indian Lane east of Hagerstown, said he has been the city's commercial billing/collections supervisor since September 1984.
The change in responsibilities comes with a slight pay increase.
Abraham's new salary will be $43,576 compared with his current salary of $41,954, Zimmerman said.
"He brings a lot of creative thinking and energy" to the new position, Zimmerman said.
Abraham's current job will be restructured with responsibilities distributed among existing staff so the city won't have to hire an additional employee, Zimmerman said.
