Handicapped spaces temporarily metered

Two new handicapped parking spaces temporarily were metered but the meters will be removed, City of Hagerstown officials said at Tuesday's Hagerstown City Council meeting.

Two handicapped spaces were added last week at the new Antietam Street lot near Washington County District Court.

A city employee put parking meters at those spaces but after one person complained to the city, bags were put over the two meters, Mayor William M. Breichner said.

The spaces were metered for less than 24 hours, he said.

Breichner promised that handicapped spaces in the city will remain free of parking meters.

Television program airing again tonight

A Hagerstown government television program that aired last week will be shown again tonight at 7 p.m., city spokeswoman Karen Giffin said.

Hagerstown officials on May 14 went on live television to answer questions that were phoned in about the proposed budget and related issues.


Questions posed by nine callers on the citizens information program on the cable access channel were about Potterfield Pool, recycling and other topics.
