Public Works Maintenance Facility Task Force
Meets to Begin Six Months of Advisory Work

 

Annapolis, MD (July 23, 2019) On Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 2 p.m., the Public Works Maintenance Facility Task Force held their inaugural meeting at the “Pip” Moyer Recreation Center. The group, chaired by former Alderman Jared Littman, was established when the City Council passed Resolution R-37-19 on July 8, 2019.


The Task Force will report back to the City Council with their recommendations by January of 2020. The group is charged with providing the Council with findings and recommendations for the location of the maintenance facility as described in the City’s 2020 Capital Improvement Program.


The issues they are tasked with addressing include: the environment, housing, zoning, traffic, quality of life, business, tax revenue and Department of Public Works employee relations.


The experts being brought together will give us their professional advice on the appropriate location of the DPW facility,” said Alderwoman Sheila Finlayson.
