The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday appointed seven people to its newly-formed citizen Dog Park Task Force.
The task force will take a closer look at various locations for an off-leash dog park, discuss what types amenities that the proposed park should have and then periodically report back to the city council with recommendations, city Engineer Rodney Tissue has said.
Hagerstown’s proposed dog park would be the first park of its kind in Washington County.
Task force members are Anthony Bittner, Renee Burgan, Heather Holman, Nate Mackley, Maria Mestre, Stacey Webster and Martha Whittington. Bittner and Mestre both attended the city council meeting.
“It’s great to have you guys help us with this decision,” Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said after the council’s unanimous approval of the group.
The task force will be sworn in next month, city officials said.
