Local residents are concerned about protesters.
The eyes of the world will be focusing on Thurmont, Maryland in a little over two-months when global leaders will be attending the G-8 Summit at Camp David in Northern Frederick County.
Thurmont Police Chief Greg Eyler said he first found about the location of the upcoming G-8 when he read it in the newspaper on Tuesday. Immediately he starting putting a plan of action together with his department on handling security in the town.
"We will be having people working overtime and we are going to be changing our shifts. There will be no leave approved a few days prior to the event and also during the event," Eyler said.
He added they are concerned mainly about the protesters and supporters and what impact they will have on Thurmont.
Already some local residents are speaking out. "The majority are concerned about Thurmont itself as far as the protesters coming in, wondering if is there going to be damage to their businesses. Others are saying it's going to be a business booming weekend."
The G-8 Summit will be held on May 18th and May 19th.
The last big meeting of world leaders at Camp David happened in July of 2000 when former President Bill Clinton hosted the Middle East Peace Summit.
