The Charles County Commissioners will hold a Public Hearing on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at 6:00 p.m., in the County Commissioners Meeting Room of the Charles County Government Building, 200 Baltimore Street, La Plata, Maryland, to consider legislation concerning school crossing guards, numbered Bill 2019-02.
The proposed legislation will amend Chapter 208-1 through 208-3 of the Code of Charles County to designate the Charles County Sheriff as the hiring authority for school crossing guards. The Code currently vests hiring authority in a Board of Public Safety. The proposed Code amendments also limit the duties of school crossing guards to assisting with pedestrian and vehicular traffic control directly related to the arrival or dismissal of students of a school.  
Individuals or representatives of groups wishing to make oral or written comments are encouraged to attend the hearing. Those individuals or representative of groups wishing to speak must sign in. Speaker sign-up will begin 30 minutes (1/2 hour) prior to the hearing and will end at the commencement of the hearing. Each speaker will be allotted three (3) minutes. Written comments may be submitted in lieu of oral testimony, or to expand upon oral testimony, to Carol DeSoto, Acting Clerk to the County Commissioners, at publicrecord@charlescountymd.gov, or to 200 Baltimore Street, La Plata, Maryland 20646. Written comments will be accepted until the Commissioners close the public record. The County Commissioners reserve the right to extend the time frame allotted for the hearing. Bill 2019-02 may be viewed in the Office of the Clerk, or on the Commissioners’ Boarddocs website at https://go.boarddocs.com/md/chrlsco/Board.nsf/Public.
