Hagerstown's tough financial situation and the future of the Hagerstown Suns were among the topics Hagerstown Mayor William M. Breichner discussed at Tuesday's State of the City Address.
Breichner said Old Man Winter's rebellion led to the city being more then $160,000 over budget for snow removal as of Feb. 26. The city's snow removal budget was $310,000.
The city's reserve fund will help cover the extra cost, Breichner said.
The city's estimated deficit for the upcoming budget year has ballooned from $1.2 million to $2 million because of state service fee increases and state cuts in highway user funds that are distributed to local governments, Breichner said.
