HAGERSTOWN - Some Washington County Board of Education members argued during a meeting Tuesday morning that it was not their responsibility to draft a plan requiring developers to help fund new schools.
They said that is the responsibility of Washington County Commissioners, who attended the meeting.
Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook questioned the school board's proposed average cost per seat during the commissioners regular meeting later that day.
School officials were not present during that meeting.
"I have difficulty with this because I don't think we should be doing it," Board of Education member Wayne D. Ridenour said. "Our job is to provide you guys (County Commissioners) with a menu of what we need and what we want. (Commissioners) are the funding authority."
Ridenour said the Commissioners should be in charge of drafting plans regarding development in the county and board members should be included in those discussions.
