Corps of Engineers Adds Dredging Projects – Fishing Creek In Revised Work Plan. U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen (Both D-Md.) today applauded the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Army Corps) FY2019 Work Plan, which directs the investment of more than $10 million in additional federal funding for critical navigation and ecosystem restoration projects in Maryland. The annual Army Corps Work Plan defines where project money can be spent across the country, above and beyond the itemized funding in the FY2019 appropriations bills. The Fishing Creek dredging project in Chesapeake Beach, originally allocated only $10,000 in the FY2019 budget, will receive $1.36 million under the Work Plan.

Let’s talk trash! “The Town of Chesapeake Beach Code requires that all trash storage receptacles shall be made of durable material and shall be watertight with tight fitting covers to control odor and prevent animal access. No garbage, trash or debris shall be placed out for collection except in proper receptacles.” Due to the excessive rains this summer, the trash company has been finding trash cans full of water along with being full of trash. This causes the cans to be so heavy that they can’t physically be picked up. The company has begun a no tolerance policy and will not collect the trash if the can is full of water. You must properly cover your containers to avoid this and to ensure pick up. Also, please do not use the Town provided recycle bins for regular trash; that will also prevent your trash from being collected. We appreciate your attention and help with these matters as we strive to keep Chesapeake Beach beautiful.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
