  Montgomery Council to Hold Worksessions On Significant Items for FY 2011-16 CIP
On Tuesday, March 16: Action Scheduled for Biotechnology Supplemental Tax Credit, Retaliation Bill

ROCKVILLE, Md., March 15, 2010—The Montgomery County Council on Tuesday, March 16, will hold worksessions on a number of significant items in County Executive Isiah Leggett’s proposed Fiscal Years 2011-16 Capital Improvements Program (CIP). Among the items the Council will discuss are improvements for County libraries, recreation facilities and golf courses.

The Council also is scheduled to take action on Expedited Bill 5-10, which would commit the County to supplementing the state’s biotechnology investment incentive tax credit program that seeks to help certain emerging biotechnology establish their businesses in Maryland. The legislation, whose chief sponsor is Councilmember Mike Knapp and which is also supported by County Executive Leggett, was recommended for approval by a 2-0-1 vote by the Council’s Planning, Housing and Economic Development (PHED) Committee.

The Council also is scheduled to take action on Bill 2-10, which would prohibit retaliation against a County employee or an employee of a County contractor or subcontractor for disclosing information about illegal or improper action in County government. Council Vice President Valerie Ervin is the chief sponsor of the bill, which was recommended for approval by a 3-0 vote by the Council’s Management and Fiscal Policy Committee.

The Council meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Third Floor Hearing Room of the Council Office Building at 100 Maryland Ave. in Rockville.

The meeting will be televised live by County Cable Montgomery (CCM—Cable Channel 6 on Comcast and RCN, Channel 30 on Verizon) and also will be available via streaming through the County Web site at www.montgomerycountymd.gov. The broadcast will be repeated at 9 p.m. on Friday, March 19.

Among the proposed CIP projects the Council will review are funding for proposed new libraries in Clarksburg and Silver Spring. Libraries recommended for significant renovations include the Davis Library in Bethesda, the Gaithersburg Library, the Olney Library and the Potomac Library. The Council’s Health and Human Services Committee unanimously recommended approval of the long-term plans.

The PHED Committee unanimously recommended renovations of varying degree for recreation centers at Good Hope, North Bethesda, North Potomac, Plum Gar, Ross Boddy, Scotland, Wheaton and White Oak.

The PHED Committee also unanimously recommended a request by the County Revenue Authority to make improvements to the golf courses at Falls Road, Needwood, Northwest, Poolesville and Rattlewood.
