By DAVE McMILLION Staff Writer Former Hagerstown Mayor Donald R. Frush, a memorable city official who was credited with passing the land-use laws that directed how the county would grow, died Thursday. Frush, 67, who was mayor from 1981 to 1985, joined the volunteer Washington County Planning Commission in the 1960s when there were no local zoning laws, subdivision ordinances or master plans outlining how the county would grow. Washington County was the last county in Maryland to pass zoning when Frush helped get the law through in 1973.
