City Council says Nigh can continue to serve on CRS board
Hagerstown City Councilwoman Penny May Nigh asked her fellow city elected officials on Tuesday whether her serving on the Community Rescue Service board of directors is a conflict of interest.
Mayor William M. Breichner, who also serves on the CRS board, said it wasn't. No one on the City Council disagreed with Breichner.
In August, the City Council voted to give CRS $50,000.
CRS is a private nonprofit ambulance company that serves about 35,000 homes and businesses in and around Hagerstown.
Nigh said she asked whether her positions on the CRS board and the council were in conflict because a city firefighter told her there is a conflict of interest.
Breichner and Nigh are not paid for their service on the CRS board.
