The Carroll County Delegation will hold its annual public hearing on proposed county legislation this week.
The meeting is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12, in the Reagan Room of the County Office Building, 225 N. Center St., Westminster.
The delegation will be discussing possible Carroll County-specific bill requests for the 2017 Maryland General Assembly legislative session, according to a news release from state Sen. Justin Ready, R-District 5. The legislative requests are made by Carroll’s Board of County Commissioners, local nonprofit organizations and individual delegation members.
Requests from the community include three legislative bond bills: one is about Carroll County Veterans Independence; one is about the Boys & Girls Club of Westminster; and one is about the Gamber Fire Company, according to the release. The Carroll County Public Schools system is requesting a bill about a scholarship for the Board of Education student representative.
The delegation is proposing a handful bills, including ones that discuss commissioner compensation, CCPS school board compensation, the Monocacy River and open comments for public and/or members of the delegation, according to the release.
Commissioners have discussed bringing forward a number of bills over the last few weeks, many of which deal with education and funding, as well as the growing opioid crisis.
