  CRISFIELD WINS MAJOR GRANT AWARD
Crisfield Mayor Barry Dize has announced that the City of Crisfield will receive two significant grants from the State of Maryland that will help inform and identify future upgrades and renovations to its aging infrastructure systems.
The first grant provides $52,000 from the Department of Housing and Community Development’s (DHCD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program to hire a professional consultant to organize and prepare a comprehensive plan for the identification and implementation of a wide range of infrastructure projects. For the first time in memory, Crisfield City Hall will be developing a Five Year Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) that will provide a road map to the future with identified funding sources addressing significant infrastructure needs that form the basis of the City’s foundation. In Mayor Dize’s words, “Before we can do anything else, we have to put our house in order and make sure we have an efficient water and sewer system, paved streets, good drainage and the like.”  
City Manager Rick Pollitt, who has years of experience spearheading such efforts, noted that a typical Five-Year CIP will lay out priority needs in seven categories: public water, public sewer, street-paving, public drainage, parks & recreation, public buildings and capital equipment. The first year of the CIP will commit funding for that fiscal year and will be a component of the adopted budget. Funding for the balance of the five years will be based on best estimates at the time and will receive funding commitments by the Mayor & Council based on what the City can afford.
The second grant addresses Mayor Dize’s strong commitment to aggressively confront the challenges presented by a poor City-wide storm-drain system. Thanks to combined funding from CDBG, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Coastal Zone Management (CZM) Program, the City has been named a sub-recipient of a grant to Somerset County which will provide $150,000 to conduct a Crisfield Drainage System Assessment. This project will provide a comprehensive assessment of the current stormwater management/drainage system and create an implementation plan, with projected costs, for necessary system improvements. This assessment will also be an invaluable aid in developing the first Capital Improvements Plan described above.
In addressing the imminent funding for these major projects, Mayor Dize offered his appreciation to the Hogan Administration and particularly to Department of Housing & Community Development Secretary Kenneth Holt, who has made a public commitment to helping Crisfield accelerate its recovery from the combined effects of Super Storm Sandy and a devastating local economy. “Secretary Holt, with the backing of Governor Hogan and his team, is making good on his pledge to work in partnership with me and my administration to re-build Crisfield and allow us to take our place as a full-service community at the gateway to the Chesapeake Bay. With this kind of support, we are sure to succeed.”

  WATER SHUT-OFF

In order to complete repairs to a major City water main line on Richardson Avenue, it will be necessary to once again turn off all water service in the Crisfield water service area for several hours. Plans call for the water to be turned off at 10:00 pm on Wednesday night, November 20th, and be restored before dawn on Thursday morning. Once again, water will need to be boiled for human consumption once the water is back on but should only be necessary for a day or so. Mayor Barry Dize and the Crisfield City Council appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to deal with an aging water system and to protect the public health. If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at 410-968-1333.
