BALTIMORE STANDING TOGETHER: Watch town hall Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on WJZ, as leaders address issues the city is facing.

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The president of FirstEnergy Corp.’s Maryland operations says the company will add 30 to 40 workers at its Williamsport office.

James Fakult made the announcement Wednesday at a Washington County Chamber of Commerce meeting.

He says the new jobs will be in customer service and engineering. About 130 employees already work in Williamsport.

Akron, Ohio-based First-Energy announced in February it would make Williamsport the headquarters for its Potomac Edison electric utility unit.

Potomac Edison has about 250,000 Maryland customers and nearly 150,000 more in neighboring Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Those customers were served by Allegheny Energy Inc. before FirstEnergy acquired it earlier this year.
