The installation of a new heating system has been moved to the next fiscal year, and M.S. Johnston Inc. instead will focus on installing a new air conditioning system by next summer.

Council approves school-mitigation plan The Hagerstown City Council has voted to approve a developer's school-mitigation plan, which the Washington County Board of Commissioners approved last month despite public protest from opponents requesting it be denied in accord with the county's Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance. The five-member council voted 4-1 on July 23 to allow the mitigation plan for the Reserve at Collegiate Acres, a planned 272-unit multifamily development in northwest Hagerstown, to move forward at a cost of $2,000 per unit, or $544,000 total.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. -- By a 5-1 vote, the Martinsburg City Council on Thursday adopted an amended version of an ordinance that prohibits individuals from carrying a firearm or other deadly weapon in any building that is city-owned, leased or under the municipality's control. In addition to City Hall, the restriction applies to the historic Market House building, the city's train station and buildings in parks deeded to the city. The amendment to the ordinance only exempted the gun carrying restriction from being enforced "on any public property," to avoid any confusion about being applied to sidewalks and streets.

Panhandling is something that just about every city police department across the nation deals with on a regular basis, Hagerstown Police Lt. Paul Kifer said. “It's everywhere,” Kifer said Monday. “No matter where you go, especially in a city environment.” And the Hub City is not immune. Simply asking for money or cigarettes from people walking the streets is not illegal, according to Kifer. However, “aggressive panhandling” - in which people continue begging after they have been told to stop - is a reportable and enforceable offense, he said.

Getting a ticket in the City of Hagerstown - and paying it - has become a point of pride for at least one city councilwoman. "The mayor and I each received a ticket and we were doing city business," Councilwoman Penny M. Nigh said Tuesday during closing comments at the council's work session. Nigh said she and Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II went to a city board of public safety meeting recently, and both were given tickets for parking at expired meters at the Market House. She noted she and Bruchey each paid their $10 tickets.
