The Garrett County Department of Planning & Land Management has launched a watershed management website to provide a centralized location for information, resources and news.  The website is designed to encourage and promote public understanding and participation in watershed activities and opportunities.  The website provides maps, publications, and information about past, on-going and planned environmental activities within each watershed.  In addition, website visitors will gain access to available mapping and water quality resources as well as information about funding opportunities and other related data.  

The Deep Creek Watershed Management Plan called for better agency coordination, as well as better public access to information.  The watershed website is a collaborative effort between Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Maryland Department of Environment (MDE), and Garrett County as a way to establish regular communication and cooperation on issues, projects and programs involving our Watersheds.   

The website can be accessed at: https://www.garrettcounty.org/watershed 

Any questions regarding this website should be directed to the Watershed Coordinator in the Garrett County Department of Planning & Land Management at (301)334-1923 or via email at garonhalt@garrettcounty.org.

Cheers,

Property Owners’ Association: State Money For Garrett County

February 7, 2017

Folks,

The State (DNR) owns approximately 90,000 acres of land in Garrett County which is not subject to property taxes for the county due to state ownership.  The current means to recoup some of the lost property taxes is to provide the county with 25% of the revenue obtained from the sale of timber on this land.  For the last several years, however, very little timber has been harvested so the revenue coming to Garrett County has been very low.  This process currently exists throughout Maryland for all counties in which the state owns land that cannot be taxed.
To remedy this situation and insure a fair amount of revenue, consistent with the amount of acreage owned by the state, this bill will provide a more equitable reimbursement of funds to Garrett County for land owned by the State of Maryland. The proposed bill breaks down the acreage into “units” of 10,000 acres and would mandate $250,000 per unit income to the county¬†annually.¬† SB273 will¬†make the County’s reimbursement¬†approximately $2 million annually. SB273 is being heard by the Senate Budget & Taxation Committee on Wednesday, February 15 at 1:00 p.m. Please send written testimony to George.edwards@senate.state.md.us by February 14, asking the Budget & Taxation Committee to give SB273 a FAVORABLE REPORT, and indicate if you plan to testify in person. Senate Bill 273 (SB 273)¬†may be seen here.¬†The existing system related to timber would no longer be used.
Your POA supports this bill because it is a fair way to reimburse the county for taxes that currently cannot be collected, and asks that you consider sending a written testimony  of endorsement.
Thanks very much in advance for your support on this bill which, if passed, will insure Garrett County is fairly reimbursed for uncollectable tax revenue.

  Cheers,

Bob Hoffmann

President
