The Hagerstown City Council Tuesday reached a consensus to buy a water slide for Potterfield Pool at an estimated cost of about $105,000.
The city can use a $27,000 state grant to pay for part of the costs, Finance Director Alfred Martin said.
Martin suggested the city fund the rest of the costs through a five-year financing plan.
If the city wants the water slide in place for the 2003 summer season it must order the slide this month, Martin said.
The city is scheduled to take a formal vote on the water slide purchase at a meeting later this month.
The only dissenting voice on the water slide purchase came from Councilman Kristin Aleshire, who said he would like to have a better sense of what the next fiscal year's budget will be like before he approves spending money on the project.
