On the Road to Little Orleans...
The Allegany County Commissioners traveled to eastern Allegany County to hold a public business meeting in Little Orleans on June 18.  The hospitality of the Orleans Volunteer Fire Department and community members was wonderful!  During their first term in office, President Valentine and Commissioner Brodie initiated this tradition and it has continued with the addition of Commissioner Shade.  The County Administrator, the County Attorney and staff members with pertinent agenda topics were also present. In addition to Little Orleans the Allegany County Commissioners now have held public meetings in Barton, Flintstone, Frostburg, Lonaconing, Luke, Oldtown and Westernport.  During the constituent comment portion of the meeting any individual may address the Board of County Commissioners about any topic. Local residents inquired about water access for recreational purposes, wi-fi coverage and medical marijuana production and distribution sites.  View Little Orleans Meeting.
