Grant to upgrade pond at Fairgrounds

June 23, 1999

The Hagerstown City Council voted 4-0 Tuesday to approve an application for a $273,000 grant that would pay for upgrades to a storm water management pond at the City Fairgrounds.

The grant would require that the city provide about $90,000 in matching funds in the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2000.

City Engineer Bruce Johnston said that with the upgrades the pond will be able to handle more storm water.

Spickler's Market is moving again, but it's staying in the same downtown Hagerstown building.

To stay open while construction crews renovated the city-owned Roslyn Building at 15-25 E. Franklin St., Spickler's moved about six months ago into 25 E. Franklin St.

Before that the store was at 15 E. Franklin St.

Sometime within the next week, the grocery store is expected to move into 17 E. Franklin St.

The Hagerstown City Council voted 4-0 Tuesday to approve an 18-month lease agreement with Spickler's. According to the lease, the store will pay the city $175 a month in rent.


The market has been part of the Roslyn Building since 1978.

The Hagerstown City Council voted 4-0 Tuesday to waive $16,912 in building and other permit fees related to the construction of a new District Court building on West Antietam Street.

Construction workers have begun site preparation work.

A ceremonial groundbreaking is tentatively scheduled for July 15.

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