Hagerstown City Councilman J. Wallace McClure wants to ride a new fire truck in the upcoming Alsatia Mummer's Parade.
But council members are at odds over whether to grant his request.
McClure made the request during Tuesday's council meeting and Councilman Alfred W. Boyer said he liked the idea. Although Boyer said he would probably watch the parade from Bester Elementary School instead of riding in the parade with his fellow council members.
Councilmen Lewis C. Metzner and William M. Breichner were against McClure's idea, which is apparently opposed by the City's fire chief.
Councilwoman Susan Saum-Wicklein left the meeting a few minutes early and the councilmen decided to wait for her tie-breaking opinion on the matter.
