September's Chat With The Chief

Due to the Labor Day holiday Monday September 3rd, September's Chat with the Chief will be held Monday September 17th, 7 PM, at the police station. This month's chat will focus on the state of the City's Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC) and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Both of these vital organizations have received less than optimal support over the past year and we need to talk about ways to recruit new volunteers in order to revitalize them. Mount Rainier's CERT coordinator Tonie Davis will attend to discus CERT operations and training.

As always, I will make time to discuss any other topic or issue about which residents or business owners have a concern.

I look forward to seeing you on the 17th.

Free Bus Rides For Kids!!

Who says there’s no such thing as a free ride?

Metro will offer just that to school-age children on weekdays between 2 PM and 7 PM in Prince George’s County. The Metro Board approved the perk on July 26th. The free rides begin Monday August 20th coinciding with the first day of the new school year.

Middle school and high school aged students will be asked to display a current school photo identification card to identify themselves as eligible for the free-ride program.

Prince George’s County is picking up the $300,000 tab for the free rides program. The program will continue through the end of Metro’s fiscal year on June 30, 2008. Metrobus operates 82 routes here in Prince George’s County.
