City approves house renovation contract


The Hagerstown City Council voted 3-1 Tuesday to approve a $52,675 contract to renovate 48 Madison Ave. under the city's Single Family Homeownership Program.

Councilman J. Wallace McClure voted against the measure because there is no off-street parking at the property.

"We're helping the house but we're not helping the neighborhood," McClure said.

The renovation contract is with Bill's Tile and Home Improvements in Hagerstown.

Spickler can terminate the lease at the end of the first or second years, provided he gives 90 days notice. The lease extension begins Jan. 1, 2001.

Bonds authorized for water plant upgrade


The Hagerstown City Council voted 4-0 Tuesday to authorize the offering of $2 million in bonds to finance improvements to Hagerstown's R.C. Willson Water Treatment Plant in Williamsport.
