Art gallery seeks funding for Art in the Park event

Ron Lytle of the Contemporary School for the Arts asked the Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday for $1,200 to help sponsor the annual Art in the Park event.

The money would be used, in part, to pay for publicity and art supplies, Lytle said.

Lytle said the event is to be held June 14 and 15 at City Park.

Councilman Martin Brubaker and Councilwoman Alesia Parson-McBean asked Lytle to provide them with a more comprehensive list of how the money would be used. He agreed to do so.

The event would feature art vendors, among other things.

Colt League asks city to OK loan for new fence at ballfield

The Hagerstown Colt League on Tuesday asked the Hagerstown City Council to approve a $15,000 interest-free loan to pay for a new chain-link fence in the outfield at Hellane Park.


Junior Mason, parks superintendent for the City of Hagerstown, said if approved, the loan would be paid back over five years at the sum of $3,000 per year.

Mason said the Colt League has been a good credit risk in the past.

The council unofficially approved the request.
