The county council is back and ready to legislate! Well, some of them are. The agenda is chock full of public hearings! Including one on Billy’s very first bill that is designed to allow one business to continue wood chipping where they should not! We noticed that Frederick Magazine had a cocktail contest in this month’s edition. In honor of some local Frederick concoctions, we will use their list for this month’s game. Do remember this game is only for fun, and it is oh so easy to dehydrate one’s self on these hot summer days.
We start off with budget adjustments, county executive appointments, and a vote on the changed council rules. If we cannot get through these mundane, simple items without an abstain slam back a tall Mysterious Ways.
Next up are three hearings on bills before the council. We have one regarding antique, artisan and craft shops. Another regarding the Frederick County retirement plan, and the last one on Billy’s wood waste bill. While we are pleased that Billy finally put something forward, though we are sure he didn’t write it himself, do we really change all the rules for one business? But what the heck, mix up a tall pitcher of The Rascal, for some effort on Shreve’s part.
Lastly, we come to public and council member comment. This is where things usually go straight to hell in a hand basket. Get yourself an old barrel and prepare many, many quarts of Fredneck Punch and drink at will!
