HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WDVM) — Hagerstown Mayor Emily Keller and her newly-elected city council are facing plenty of challenges right out of the gate.
The city’s new administration held its first council meeting Tuesday night, facing a $1.6 million deficit, decisions about the Suns’ baseball stadium and other recreational sites like a proposed skate park. All options are on the table says Mayor Keller. But her most important priority is opening lines of communication between her administration, members of the council, and citizens across the city.
“We’d like to have a mayor advisory council throughout different neighborhoods,” Keller says. “So I’m seeking feedback directly from all neighborhoods of the community.”
Mayor Keller says that COVID-19 has placed a lot of restrictions on community outreach but she plans on being creative to get feedback from citizens in every Hagerstown neighborhood.
