Amendment to fence ordinance voted down



The introduction of an ordinance to amend the city's requirements to install a front-yard fence was voted down Tuesday by the Hagers-

town City Council.

Among other things, the amendment would have required front-yard fences to be set back at least five feet from the sidewalk.

Councilman Lewis C. Metzner suggested the council discuss the issue further at future meetings.
