Bruchey, Glendening discuss police overtime funds
Hagerstown Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said Tuesday that he has discussed with Gov. Parris Glendening the city's need for more funding to pay police overtime costs.
Bruchey said that during the Friday discussion, Glendening said he understands the city's plight and suggested the mayor write to Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend for help.
State Sen. Donald F. Munson, R, Washington, said Wednesday he will meet with Townsend to discuss the overtime funding.
While getting the funding is a long shot, Munson said Glendening made a strong commitment to holding crime down during his State of the State address on Wednesday.
