The Frederick County Office of Economic Development (OED) announces the first Municipalities Impact Awards were held yesterday at the Middletown Fire Hall. Ten Frederick County municipalities were honored for their commitments to supporting businesses.
The event is a project of OED and began with a survey to municipalities in 2017 to gather economic impact data from each town. The Municipalities Impact Awards were created to recognize the projects and initiatives that municipal elected officials and municipal staff work on every day to help support OED’s overall goals of increasing the number of jobs and businesses in Frederick County.
