Commissioners to discuss PenMar board changes

December 24, 2003|by TARA REILLY

The Washington County Commissioners will discuss possible changes to the PenMar Development Corp.'s board of directors early next year, County Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook said Tuesday.

Snook said the changes, if made, would include reducing the size of the board from 15 to 11 members and changing PenMar's bylaws so that the commissioners have the authority to remove board members.

Currently, the commissioners can only appoint board members.

PenMar was created by the state in 1997 to redevelop the former Fort Ritchie U.S. Army base, which the Army shut down in 1998.

Snook said he didn't think the commissioners would need state authority to make such changes.

Since September, seven people resigned from the board, including the chairwoman and treasurer.

Earlier this month, the commissioners made two appointments, giving the board a total of 10 people.
