More than 150 members of the business community turned out Tuesday for breakfast and a look at Washington County's future at the annual "State of the County" meeting. As Commissioners' President Greg Snook noted, the new board has been in office only eight weeks, too little time, it would seem, for the honeymoon to be over yet. To give the commissioners their due, however, judging from Snook's presentation, the new board seems to be proceeding in a cautious and business-like manner.

For Commissioner Doris J. Nipps, the Maryland Association of Counties' annual conference also provided the opportunity to talk turf. "The jury's still out. I still have to look at it a little bit closer, but I think there may be some use for it," said Nipps, who took part in a discussion about artificial turf while at the conference, which ended Saturday.

Williamsport will get less tax setoff money this year WILLIAMSPORT - The Town of Williamsport will receive less property tax setoff money for fiscal 2001 than in the last fiscal year, according to Washington County Commissioner Gregory I. Snook. Williamsport was allocated $48,275 for fiscal 2001 compared to $53,061 for fiscal 2000, said Snook. The county will deduct $16,563.37 from Williamsport's tax setoff to pay off a town utility debt, he said. The commissioners attributed the tax setoff decrease to growth in taxable income and the tax base in unincorporated areas of Washington County.
