Elkton June 2nd Town Meeting Has Important Public Policy Matters on Agenda

At the June 2 Elkton Town Meeting the Mayor and Commissioners have a number of important items on the agenda.   In addition to swearing-in Mayor Fisona for a third term and Commissioners Jablonski and Hicks, the board will take up several public policy related matters. 

  • Adopting an ordinance that gives the town authority to credit major facilities charged.  This regulation, which permits the town to provide financial credits for water and sewer hook-ups, was introduced at last the town meeting.  Presently the major utility connection fee is $15,000 for each hook-up.  This regulation specifically states that the town may grant credits and transfer those fee waivers to another property.   The matter of whether the town has the authority to transfer revenue generating credits from one property to another created enormous controversy in January and is the subject of a lawsuit filed by two Elkton taxpayers.  If approved, the new addition to the code will provide the authority for the municipality to waive fees.
  • Resolution concerning Building Codes –  Information on this resolution is not available as of this time.
  • Adoption of Fiscal Budget for 2011
  • Request by All American Sports Academy for Outdoor Concert Event

  1. One of the challenges in providing news about matters in Elkton, is that the municipality does not share draft documents or regualtions they’re working on. In the case of the two that are under consideration for this meeting, the public is only aware of what was said in the meeting. It would be helpful, as Commissioner Givens has pointed out, if they would allow the audience to view the documents by using presenting them on a screen. We’d also suggest they post them on their website. That way the public could provide constructive feedback on whats under consideration. We’re attempting to get drafts of the docs through Freedom of Information filings and if we get them in time, we’ll share the info.
