August 24, 2005|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

Two loan agreements between the city and sports leagues were approved Tuesday night during the Hagerstown City Council's voting session.

A 10-year, $20,000, interest-free loan to the Hagerstown PONY League was approved by a 4-0 vote. The loan is said to be for the construction of a chain-link fence at Funkhouser Park.

The Hagerstown Fairgrounds Softball Association was approved for a $26,915, 10-year, no-interest loan for the construction of a fence around three fields at Fairgrounds Park.

Councilwomen Penny M. Nigh and Kelly S. Cromer voted against the softball league loan; council members Kristin B. Aleshire, Lewis C. Metzner and Alesia D. Parson-McBean favored the measure.
