dank@herald-mail.com The new owner of the paper recycling plant in Hagerstown has accepted an electric-service contract from the city that includes a surcharge that could be worth about $4.2 million over 20 years, city Finance Director Al Martin said Wednesday. The surcharge covers the cost, plus interest, of about $2.8 million the city is owed for building an electric substation and upgrading power lines at the plant, as well as other unpaid charges, Martin said. The 20-year contract between plant owner Newstech MD and the city also gives Newstech MD a special electricity rate, Light Department Manager Terry Weaver said.
