Muldowney says spend gaming funds on debts
By JULIE E. GREENE
Fed up with having his general fund tax dollars used to help pay off Washington County's $55 million water and sewer debt, a former member of the Washington County Gaming Commission proposed Tuesday that gaming funds be used.
"I pay more to subsidize a system I don't use than I do for my system which I am happy and glad to use," Hagerstown resident Paul D. Muldowney told city and Washington County officials during a joint meeting at City Hall on Tuesday.
Muldowney said his concern arose from a proposal to write into law the county's current practice of using $3.5 million from the county's general fund to help pay off the debt.
