In a 4-0 vote Tuesday, the Hagerstown City Council adopted a plan for annexing 5.16 acres of property along Pangborn Boulevard that is owned by Pangborn Corp. The council also voted 4-0 to introduce a resolution for annexing the property. Introduction of the resolution and adoption of the plan allows the city to move forward with the annexation process, which includes hosting a public hearing in November. The council has not yet voted to approve annexing the property. Most of the property, where the corporation formerly operated, lies within the city boundary, but a more than 5-acre piece remains outside the city, City Planner Alex Rohrbaugh said previously.

Hagerstown City Council will vote Tuesday on introducing a measure to annex a portion of the former Pangborn Corp. site. While most of the property lies within the city boundary, a piece measuring more than five acres remains outside the city, City Planner Alex Rohrbaugh said. The corporation has petitioned to be annexed into the city, he said. However, annexing the entire remaining piece of Pangborn's lot would isolate five residential lots farther south on Pangborn Boulevard that are completely outside the city, he said.

The landmark smokestack at the former Pangborn Corp. plant in Hagerstown fell Monday. Allegany Wrecking and Salvage tore down the 100-foot smokestack along Pangborn Boulevard printed with the word “Pangborn.” All that remains of the demolition project is to “clean up and get out of there,” said Joel Merrbaugh, owner of the company contracted to demolish the building. The goal was to have the demolition complete by mid-summer, Merrbaugh said in December. Using a combination of a wrecking ball and sledgehammers, the company brought down the smokestack Monday.

The lake at Pangborn Park in Hagerstown was drawing double takes from people Wednesday afternoon after the water took on a light, milky appearance. It turned out to be paint, according to a Hagerstown Fire Department spokesman. The water-soluble paint had fallen off a truck at 1234 Potomac Ave. near East Magnolia Avenue, fire and police officials said. Some vehicles were splattered with paint in the incident, which was reported about 2 p.m., according to a 911 dispatcher.
