Hagerstown council OKs $284,484 to repair HPD canopy

December 23, 2009|By DAVE McMILLION

The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday approved a $283,484 contract to repair a canopy around the Hagerstown Police Department on North Burhans Boulevard.

The police station is a former railroad passenger station that was built in 1913, City Engineer Rodney Tissue said.

The canopy, which is a roof that encircles the building, has never been repaired and there is some metal framing that is rusting, and the roof is leaking, Tissue said.

City council members decided to accept a bid from Manolis Painting of Baldwin, Md., to repair the canopy, and the work is expected to begin in the spring, Tissue said.

Council members Ashley Haywood and Forrest Easton voted against the contract.

Easton said he could not support the project given funding shortfalls that are expected to affect the city.
