County OKs goals



By SCOTT BUTKI / Staff Writer


The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday approved county goals for 2001.

The next step will be to formulate an action plan for each goal.

After making a few minor changes, the commissioners adopted the following goals:

-- Have staff and the Washington County Planning Commission complete and forward the revised Comprehensive Plan to the County Commissioners. It will be available to the public this year.

-- Establish priorities for Emergency Services Committee recommendations, although the priorities will not necessarily be implemented in the coming fiscal year.

-- Establish and adopt alignments for Rench Road, the extension of Eastern Boulevard and Funkstown's Hebb Road connection to Alternate 40.

-- Develop a plan to integrate the county's telephone and data communication technology, possibly to include some wireless communications.

-- Establish goals to find ways to improve access to services through electronic government.

-- In cooperation with the Board of Education, adopt the evaluation of school facilities, determining appropriate capacity and affordability and adopt recommended changes. The plan could result in the consolidation of some schools.

-- Obtain state backing for U.S. 11 improvements to support the Hagerstown Regional Airport runway extension.

-- Develop and establish a marketing plan for the airport and vicinity that includes commercial air service.

-- Develop a plan to improve the county's bond rating.
