City Council approves appointments

September 28, 1998

Hagerstown City Council members approved several appointments this week and recommended a former YMCA executive director be appointed to the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission.

The council has recommended Franklin P. Erck III of Fairchild Avenue to a three-year term on the economic development commission. The Washington County Commissioners must approve the appointment.

Erck was the local YMCA executive director from 1973 to 1988, said City Clerk Gann Breichner. Now he is a loan officer at Home Federal Savings Bank.

The council also voted 4-0 on several appointments. Councilman William M. Breichner was absent.
