The Board of County Commissioners of Calvert County will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. at the Southern Community Center, 20 Appeal Lane, Lusby, MD 20657, for the purpose of receiving testimony from the public on the Special Tax District Petition of the Drum Point Property Owner’s Association (DPPOA). The public hearing time, date, and location may be revised by the announcement of an emergency, such as inclement weather, without further publication and may be confirmed on the County website or by calling any number listed below on the date of the hearing.

DPPOA has submitted a Petition to extend the existing Special Taxing District that expires on June 30, 2022, for an additional five years at an increased levy. The purpose of the District is to fund improvements for the benefit of the property owners within the subdivision. The levy DPPOA has requested is One Hundred Seventy-Five Dollars ($175) per lot in the Drum Point subdivision per year. The estimated income from this levy is Two Hundred Forty-Eight Thousand Three Hundred Twenty-Five Dollars ($248,325.00) annually. All funds remaining in the existing District are proposed to be carried forward to this District. All funds generated by the special taxing may be spent only in accordance with the express provisions of the ordinance creating the district and any agreement executed by DPPOA’s Board and the Board of County Commissioners. Following the Public Hearing, the Board of County Commissioners may deny the Petition or grant the Petition, with or without amendment.

All persons interested, or their agents or attorneys, may appear before the County Commissioners on the date and time noted above and be heard concerning the proposed Special Tax District.
