Ordinance would restrict peddling

The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday introduced an ordinance that would place restrictions on people peddling in public places.

Under the ordinance, peddlers selling from a vehicle going from place to place must not:

  • Sell from the same location for more than 30 minutes at one time.

  • Sell from the same location more than once a day.

  • Sell within 300 feet of a permanent store, restaurant or other business location offering for sale similar or competing products to those of the licensed peddler.

  • Sell within 300 feet of a city special event unless the peddler acquires specific license to do so.

Design contract for public restrooms OK'd

The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday approved a contract for a company to do the architectural design for handicapped-accessible public restrooms to be built in City Park.

The $8,150 contract is with Design Build Architects of Hagerstown.

The proposed restrooms would be built between the existing restrooms and the band shell.

Council to spend $44,000 on cable

The Hagerstown City Council voted Tuesday to spend $44,000 to install fiber-optic cable from the Hagerstown Police Department to the Washington County Sheriff's Department jail.

The move will allow digital communication between the law enforcement agencies.

About $5,000 of the cost is for a one-time license fee to Antietam Cable.
