Council backs proposed computer literacy program

August 07, 2002|by SCOTT BUTKI

The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday gave general support for a proposed computer literacy training program for low- to moderate-income community residents.

The projected budget for the program at the city-owned Hagerstown Telework Center is $117,112, according to documents provided to the council.

The center, which has 17 computers, is part of the Elizabeth Hager Center at 14 N. Potomac St.

June Wright, who works part time at the center, told the council the program could teach computer skills to 65 to 85 people a year.

The council directed city staff to work with Wright on the program.

Wright said she will attempt to get state funds to pay for the project.
