City likely to waive permit fees for new court building

June 09, 1999

Hagerstown City Council members on Tuesday informally agreed to waive $16,912 in building and other permit fees related to the construction of a new District Court building on West Antietam Street.

Councilwoman Susan Saum-Wicklein said she probably would vote against waiving the permit fees.

Saum-Wicklein said the city has been asking for reimbursement from the state for providing a fire marshal. She said the amount of the permit fees is close to the amount the city had requested for the fire marshal.

Saum-Wicklein also reiterated her call for a written policy on waiving permit fees for other governments and nonprofit groups.

The other four council members agreed to waive the fees for the building.

Barry L. Miller, project manager for the new District Court building, said construction workers probably would begin preparing the site for construction within a week.

The $4 million building is expected to be completed in September 2000, Miller said.
