HAGERSTOWN -- Some members of the Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday attacked a program in which about $108,976 of taxpayers' money was used to buy gasoline so municipal employees could drive city-owned vehicles to and from work. A portion of the money, which was spent between November 2006 and October 2007, also was used to supply gasoline for the vehicles to use on the job, city records show. Almost 33,635 gallons of gasoline were purchased for 48 vehicles during that one-year period.
