The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday voted to buy a $60,000 water slide for Potterfield Pool even though some council members said they may face criticism for the decision. The total cost of the water slide, including installation, is expected to be about $105,000, Finance Director Alfred Martin said. The city faces a budget shortfall of about $2 million with the next fiscal year, so some residents may question whether the city can afford the slide, Councilman Lewis C. Metzner said.

scottb@herald-mail.com The Hagerstown City Council Tuesday reached a consensus to buy a water slide for Potterfield Pool at an estimated cost of about $105,000. The city can use a $27,000 state grant to pay for part of the costs, Finance Director Alfred Martin said. Martin suggested the city fund the rest of the costs through a five-year financing plan. If the city wants the water slide in place for the 2003 summer season it must order the slide this month, Martin said.

By LISA GRAYBEAL Staff Writer, Waynesboro WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Workers are diving into another season of cleaning and repairing Northside Park Pool, a job that gets more difficult each year. Considered top-of-the-line when the in-ground public swimming pool was built in 1972 off of Brown Street, the 25-year-old 'Z' formation 100-meter pool is past its prime. The main building, containing the front desk, men's and women's locker rooms, lifeguard station, and concession stand, is also showing its age. "A lot of patching has been done over the past 20 years," said Waynesboro Councilman Vicki Huff, during a tour of the pool and surrounding grounds.
