OAKLAND — The Garrett County Commissioners are set to vote on extending the terms of an agreement with American Woodmark Corporation during the commission meeting Tuesday.

The agreement includes the loan repayment terms and associated terms with construction and job creation, according to Mike Koch, executive director of Garrett County Community Planning & Development.

“Currently, there are no active plans for an American Woodmark location in Garrett County, but we are hopeful that the extension and an improving economy will provide for opportunities in the future,” said Koch.

Also on agenda is a decision on the boundary changes for the county sanitary district. The public comment period for the boundary changes is open until Tuesday and includes a review session with Gorman Getty III, county attorney. The county’s Water and Sewer Master Plan hasn’t been updated in full since 1997 and once it’s completed it will include a review of all sewer and water service areas, according to Monty Pagenhardt, county administrator. There are people who are outside the service district per the map definition but they are receiving services, and vice versa, said Pagenhardt in a previous interview with the Times-News.
