Commissioners to visit Boonsboro

When the Washington County County Commissioners meet with the Boonsboro Mayor and Town Council on Tuesday, Sept. 28, the Boonsboro Recycling Task Force plans to be well represented.

The meeting, which is open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. in the Community Center at Shafer Memorial Park.

Task force members plan to ask the commissioners about the progress of recycling efforts in the county.

Boonsboro-area residents with concerns about county government are encouraged to attend the meeting to voice any concerns they might have or ask questions of the commissioners.

A dozen Boonsboro residents formed the task force in August 2007. Since then, members have sponsored the annual Green Fest in Shafer Memorial Park, started environmental clubs in the middle and high schools and promoted recycling and reuse programs within the community, while continuing to advocate for a curbside recycling program.
