COVID-19 Vaccine Incentive Payments Are In Store For Middletown Employees

Town employees who worked during the pandemic will also receive an incentive payment.

Middletown, Md. (NS) – Middletown will incentivize town employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, and reward those who worked during the pandemic.

Burgess John Miller said in order to receive a $1,000 payment, workers need to be fully vaccinated by December 17th.

“I know we do have some that are not vaccinated. We’ve instituted with some American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding for COVID relief for employees, we used some of that money to reward our employees who worked during the COVID crisis,” said Miller.

He said all employees that worked through the pandemic will also receive a $1,000 payment regardless of vaccination status.

In other Middletown news, Burgess Miller said there is a proposal to build a walking trail between Myersville and Middletown.

He said it could be the first piece of a larger path to Brunswick.

“We’ve investigated the land and the property between Middletown and Myersville and so we’re just trying to lay the groundwork now for what we may have to do to make it a reality,” he said.

They will discuss it at a later time.
