A new webpage
launched today on the Frederick County Government website – www.FrederickCountyMD.gov/FederalFurlough
– provides information and links to resources available for federal employees
affected by the current government shutdown.
“An estimated 4,000 Frederick County residents have been
furloughed by the federal government’s partial shutdown. I know this is
causing great stress for many families in our community,” County Executive Jan
Gardner said. “Fortunately, we are blessed to live in a county that truly
comes together to care for our neighbors in need.
Resources are available to help during this difficult time. If you or
someone you know is struggling as a result of the shutdown, the information on
the county website may help until the federal government is fully reopened.”
