City Council votes to buy new sound system

December 22, 1999

After years of dealing with a sound system that was sometimes too quiet, sometimes too loud and would periodically pick up unrelated conversations over the airwaves, the Hagerstown City Council is turning in its existing system for a $25,159 new one.

The council on Tuesday voted 4-1 to buy a new sound system for the Council Chamber from DSL Sound Inc. in Hagerstown.

The Council Chamber is where regular council meetings are held.

Councilman J. Wallace McClure cast the lone vote against the purchase. McClure said the council should try to use the existing microphones with new audio equipment to save money.

Councilwoman Susan Saum-Wicklein said although the existing microphones could be used with the new equipment, the new sound system would still have some of the problems that made the old one inadequate.

City Clerk Gann Breichner said the new sound system probably will be installed in January.
