County briefs 2/1



The Washington County Commissioners Tuesday designated February as "Kids with Heart Month: Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Month."

More than 25,000 infants - or about one of every 150 - are born each year with heart defects in the United States.

The County Commissioners have appointed Gerry Ditto to an additional two-year term on the Agricultural Land Preservation Advisory Board.

The measure was approved by unanimous vote.




Peter E. Perini Sr. and Patricia McMillan have been appointed to two-year terms on the newly created Disability Advisory Committee.

Their initial one-year terms on the committee have expired.

The Disability Advisory Committee also requested the appointment of Gary Swartz of Hagerstown to fill a vacant position on the committee.

The measures were approved by unanimous vote.
