Square work to last until March

Renovation of the last quadrant of Hagerstown's Public Square isn't expected to be completed until March, the assistant city engineer said Wednesday.

The southeast quadrant near the Alexander House could be completed sooner if materials arrive soon and the weather is good, Rodney Tissue said.

If the ground is frozen, work will be delayed, he said.

The project is within its $455,000 budget, Tissue said. Some unexpected costs have been incurred, but savings in other areas made up for them, he said.


The contract with Callas Constructors will have to be extended, he said.

Trees are being planted in the other three quadrants this week.

Renovations started late, on Aug. 4, 1997.

Clock atop City Hall repaired

The four-faced clock atop Hagerstown's City Hall was fixed earlier this week, said Doug Stull, public works manager.

The clock only needed a little tinkering, Stull said.

If it continues to be a problem, the motor may need to be replaced.

Councilman J. Wallace McClure alerted city officials to the fact the clock wasn't working during a work session last week.
