COUNCIL CONVENES VIRTUALLY FOR FINAL SESSION PRIOR TO SUMMER RECESS; HOLDS PUBLIC HEARINGS; ADOPTS SEVERAL MEASURES; PLACES BOND BILLS ON NOVEMBER BALLOT; ADDRESSES HOMESTEAD PROPERTY TAX CREDIT CAP LEGISLATION
The Prince George’s County Council convened virtually on Tuesday, July 21st, in its final regular session before the August recess. During Tuesday’s session, the Council considered and adopted over 25 legislative measures; held 18 public hearings; and addressed proposed correspondence.
Council Chair Todd M. Turner noted the outstanding work of his Council colleagues, as well as staff, to address important issues given our virtual operations.
The Council adopted the following measures:
In other matters, following public testimony from over 25 residents on CB-048-2020, proposed legislation concerning a Charter Amendment to amend the Homestead Property Tax Credit Cap in Prince George’s County, District 6 Council Member Derrick Leon Davis, moved to table the bill, an action unanimously supported by the Council, and no further vote was taken. The matter will not be placed on the November ballot in the General Election for voters to decide. “The Council has heard from our residents on this matter and believes today’s action indicates the will of the people we were elected to represent, and a recognition of our current times,” said Council Chair Turner.
The Council also recognized Department of Corrections Director, Mary Lou McDonough, as she prepares to retire from Prince George’s County Government following over 40 years of service.
The County Council is scheduled to meet as the District Council on Monday July 27, 2020. The Council will reconvene in September, unless an emergency meeting is needed during recess.
