HAGERSTOWN ? Two City of Hagerstown employees who were permitted to hunt at the city-owned Edgemont Watershed no longer will be able to do so, at least for now.
Even though authorities banned hunting on the property last year, the two city employees were given special permission to hunt at the watershed in exchange for doing work there on their own time.
City Administrator Bruce Zimmerman said Friday the decision to review the matter was made Wednesday so the city's attorneys could examine who would be held liable if someone was hurt.
"I just want to make sure we covered all the bases," he said.
Zimmerman said he was not aware that the employees were hunting at the watershed, and when attorneys find an answer to the liability question, he intends to bring the matter before the Hagerstown City Council for discussion.
