B Street Slope Assessment and the Beach Boardwalk Closure – The Town has contracted a geotechnical engineer to provide a global stability analysis of the  B street slope after the slope has showed signs of deterioration and damaged the Boardwalk. The geotechnical engineer has provided September 7th as the expected completion date for the analysis. Once reviewed, the Town will have a better understanding of the work that is needed to ensure the boardwalk is safe to repair and reopen to the public. We thank you for your patience while this review takes place.

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
