The City of Frederick seeking resident input in shaping the legislative priorities that will guide the City's future. This process aims to understand the collective desires of the community for projects and policies the State of Maryland could assist in bringing to the City of Frederick.
The Maryland General Assembly Session begins on January 10th, 2024, and will run until April 8th, 2024. Maryland municipalities and other organizations seeking funding for local priorities generally participate in the Session in order to incorporate funding requests into the State of Maryland’s annual budget, or advocate for policy changes that benefit their communities.
Mayor O’Connor said, “The City of Frederick is excited to engage our residents in shaping our legislative priorities for the 2024 legislative session in Annapolis. I believe the collective voice of our community is vital in creating a vibrant and responsive City. I encourage residents to participate in this process in order to help guide the City’s future.”
