Chesapeake Bay Trust Grant

FINAL 2021 PRESS RELEASE for June 24 Green Streets Awards

Great news – thanks to the Herculean efforts of Robin Kogelnik and Beth Boa the Town has been awarded $14,700. From the 2021 Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Towns Grant Program though the Chesapeake Bay Trust. Our first step is to select an outside consultant to develop a conceptual plan. The work includes using GIS data, Town records, County Storm drain records, and Federal and State databases pertinent to the Town. The consultant will review the known problem areas to understand the current drainage patterns within the Town including direction of flow, intensity of flows, flooding, standing water, and erosion. After analysis, an overall drainage area map and flow computations will be developed for up to 12 locations identified by the Town. The plan will include recommendations for mitigation measures for each area that focus on green street stormwater infrastructure.

We acknowledge program partners: United States Environmental Protection Agency Region 3, Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and the Chesapeake Bay Trust.

We will keep you posted as this process moves forward.

Filing Local Taxes

TAX RETURN REMINDER: MARYLAND TAXING AREA Revenues received through our residents’ paid income taxes are a source of Town revenues. The Town needs your help to ensure that all income tax revenue due to the Town arrives here. It is important that the portion of the tax paid to Montgomery County returns to the Town. In order for the state of Maryland to return this revenue, your political subdivision needs to be entered on Maryland Form 502. Maryland Form 502 now requests a 4 digit Political Subdivision Code as well as the Maryland Political Subdivision. The 4 digit Code for Glen Echo is 1605. Please also be sure that “Glen Echo” is written in
the box labeled “City, Town or Taxing Area.” This ensures that our community receives its fair share of the income tax revenues distributed by the state.
