City Council briefs

June 24, 1998

People who pay their parking fines quickly will no longer get a break under a law introduced Tuesday by the Hagerstown City Council.

A ticket for an expired meter is $3 if paid within 24 hours. The council voted Tuesday to remove the discount and set the fine at $5.

Motorists must still pay the ticket within 10 days or face a $15 fine. After 30 days, the fine jumps to $30.

The council voted 3-1 in favor of the change with Councilwoman Susan K. Saum-Wicklein the lone dissenter.

The council must take a second vote on the proposal before it becomes law.




The Hagerstown City Council Tuesday proposed an increase in the cost of public utility licenses and some electrical permits.

Gas, water, telephone and electric companies would be required to pay the city $750 a year for a utility license, up from $500.

The cost of electrical permits would change for duplexes and office spaces. Duplex owners would pay $60 per side instead of $90 and a permit for office space would increase to $150 from $60.
