Public Hearing Scheduled for Adoption of the 2017 National Electrical Code

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – July 5, 2018 – The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) will hold a public hearing Tuesday, July 17, 2018, to consider and receive comments regarding the adoption of the 2017 edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC) with amendments.

Implementation of the NEC promotes the health, safety and welfare of citizens by providing standards for the protection of consumers and electricians. Amendments to the NEC allow Calvert County Government to customize certain provisions of the national standards to address circumstances specific to Calvert County. After thorough review and discussion by the Calvert County Board of Electrical Examiners, it is recommended the BOCC adopt the NEC in its entirety along with special provisions.

The hearing will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Commissioners’ Hearing Room in the Calvert County Circuit Courthouse, located at 175 Main St. in Prince Frederick. Citizens are encouraged to view the resolution online.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
