City officials will push for funding for local projects.
The local legislative delegation is scheduled to meet on Tuesday, Feb. 12th with Frederick city elected officials. It's all part of City of Frederick day in Annapolis.
"City of Frederick day is an opportunity for us to highlight major projects going on here in the city of Frederick, down in Annapolis, with the legislators," says Richard Griffin, Director of Economic Development for the City of Frederick. "In particular, these are projects that have received or need state support."
Griffin says some of those projects include Frederick Municipal Airport, Monocacy Boulevard Phase II Construction, the proposed Downtown Frederick hotel and conference Center, the 3rd and final phase of the Carroll Creek flood control project, which has just received approval to go out to bid, and the city's wastewater treatment plant upgrade.
Mayor Randy McCLement, the Board of Aldermen and city project managers are expected to be there to make their case for the city's projects. "Bringing our projects to the attention of our State Legislators at Frederick Day is always an exciting event for us. It gives the City of Frederick an opportunity to showcase our work and what are plans are, and how their assistance is valued," says Mayor McClement in a statement. "This is a wonderful opportunity for us to highlight the best of Frederick and discuss City needs."
