Attention Hagerstown Residents! We just want to let people know that both of the leaf vacs are broke down and are diligently being repaired at this time. As soon as we get one back up and going our crews will resume leaf pick up. We apologize for any inconvenience. We are allowing people to bag the leaves in CLEAR BAGS and we will pick those up in the mean time. ...
Hagerstown Water customers are on a boil order until further notice. There was a one call last evening. If you did not receive the one call please contact town hall and verify that your phone number is correct. Thank you. ...
Hagerstown is the only water utility that I’ve seen “drain the tower” to make repairs....proper maintenance on the system could prevent this and also save quite a bit of money. How much did it cost to treat the water in the tower to simply drain it? Oh that doesn’t matter, we will just raise the rates of our customers!
"Several hours"? Ha........try ALL NIGHT LONG.....TRY 7 HOURS AT LEAST.
HPD has been working closely with Nettle Creek Schools bus garage in enforcing School Bus stop arm violations. Several buses are equipped with cameras that activate when the stop arm is activated and takes still pictures. HPD issued 3 citations this week for disregarding the stop arm. Please pay attention or get cited !! ...
Passing a school bus violation should be as stiff as DUI. Pull license for 30 days on first violation!!!! Second in a 5 year time frame gone for 90 days and driver take stupidity class. And the 10,000.00 fine should be enforced on every one!!!!!!!!!!!
This should result in a license suspended for say a year which would result in high cost insurance.
Isn’t it sad though that people can’t just follow the rules and stop? Thanks HPD for working to help ensure the safety of our students!
Nice! Didn't know this technology existed! They should have their license suspended as well in my opinion
Thank you HPD for working to keep our children safe, and thank you Nettle Creek Schools for this extra investment for student safety.
It’s about time they started doing this. Every school bus everywhere should have the cameras and do this.
What happens after multiple violations by the same person? When will they loose a license?
Thank you! Approximately 5 times EVERY school year I see cars NOT stopping for the school bus in front of my house. I am thankful that the cameras on the new buses are working. Thanks Nettle Creek School and HPD. This will help keep our kids safe!
Prayers for the safety of all children
Thank you for taking care of our kids!
Great job!!!! Thank you for keeping children safe!!!!

PS way to go!
So what’s the citation?
Every Bus and the stiffest penalties
A Class B misdemeanor unless you run over someone, then it becomes Class A? Not much of a deterrent
