Hagerstown Mayor Steven T. Sager listed administration accomplishments in an upbeat State of the City address at the Day's Inn on the Dual Highway Tuesday morning.
Sager also made it clear that areas of disagreement remain between city and Washington County governments, especially over what he called the "county water and sewer debt fiasco."
Sager said the local economy has experienced "a phenomenal growth rate" in the past several years. "We've added a net 1,000 jobs per year for five, six or seven years," he said. The city's unemployment rate has hovered at around 4 percent for the past several months, he said.
