News Release, Charles County Public Information Office
The Charles County Department of Community Services Housing Authority is suspending in-person appointments and inspections due to the coronavirus pandemic immediately. Until further notice, all customers who currently have a scheduled appointment will be contacted by the Housing Authority staff to complete phone appointments or to reschedule for a later date.
There will be no penalties incurred by participants during this time due to canceled or rescheduled appointments or inspections. Participants are reminded, however, to continue to report any changes but only through electronic means, such as using the Housing online portal Assistance Connect, fax, email, or by sending information through the regular mail.
The situation of the COVID-19 is rapidly evolving and the operating status could change at any time. For safety reasons we encourage customers to conduct business remotely if possible, and avoid visiting our office in person during this time. Citizens with special needs may contact the Maryland Relay Service at 711, or Relay Service TDD: 800-735-2258.
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 [email protected]
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
