ANNAPOLIS - Washington County lawmakers and local residents made their bids Tuesday for shares of $625,000 in state funding for various county projects, including:
- $250,000, requested by Memorial Recreation Center to help pay for ongoing renovation of the former school building on North Street.
The center offers a variety of educational and recreational programs to local children.
"We need to bring our program and our building up to modern standards so we can serve the youth of our community," Ruth Monroe, director of the center, told the House of Delegates Appropriations Committee.
