Maryland Independent to Feature Charles County Government Column

The column will kick off with a 3-part series focusing on the county’s permits process. The March 18 column will highlight home improvement permits. The second installation of the series will focus on business permits, and the last will premiere the upcoming automation system, which  will make the permitting process more streamlined and efficient.
