Pre-PACE Meeting -
-Water and Sewer Project Funding
The Allegany County Department of Public Works utilizes the opportunity of the annual PACE Reception and Breakfast in Annapolis to organize a comprehensive review of important county water and sewer projects with state and federal officials. All Allegany County municipalities which have water and/or sewer facilities are invited to participate and present their own water and sewer projects. This all-day planning and discussion session, the “Pre-PACE” meeting, focuses on current as well as proposed water and sewer projects. These projects may be in the planning, design, or construction phase. These projects are expensive, complex, and have long-term implications.This annual meeting is instrumental in ultimately securing financial commitments for water and sewer projects. PACE is the magnet and it attracts not only state officials but also federal officials. Key representatives from those agencies which fund water and sewer projects are gathered in Annapolis for the PACE Reception and Breakfast and attend the Pre-PACE meeting. The Allegany County Department of Public Works obtained funding for two recent noteworthy public water projects – one in Mount Savage and one for the Rawlings area – at Pre-PACE meetings. Now, the majority of Allegany County residents have access to public water.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development had three representatives:Denise MacLeish, Community Development Director, and Kendra Harmon and Brandi Burwell, Area Specialists, Office of Community Programs.
The Maryland Department of the Environment was represented by Walid Saffouri, Program Director, Office of Budget, Gary Magaziner, Senior Engineer, Office of Budget, Walter Lara, Administrator, Water Quality Financing, Chris Carski, Compliance Engineer, Engineering & Tech Division, Joe Bratchie, Compliance Engineer, Office of Budget, and Barry O’Brien, Division Chief, Water Supply.
The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (HUD) had three representatives: Cindy Stone, Director, Office of Community Programs, Anne Stringer, Assistant Director, Office of Community Programs, and Charles Day, Manager, Local Government Finance Program.
