HAGERSTOWN - The Hagerstown City Council today will discuss whether to spend $21,729 to have city workers demolish two buildings behind the Alms House on North Locust Street.
City Public Works Director Eric Deike said the cost would include the installation of a fence behind the city-owned building and improvements to the front yard.
In November, the council told Deike and City Engineer Rodney Tissue to research whether the project could be done at a lower cost using city workers rather than hiring a private contractor.
According to city documents, one of three outside bids, submitted by Wrecking & Salvage for $17,700, was lower. The other bids were for $28,300 and $25,530, according to the documents.
