DNR Fisheries Service Announces Regulatory Public Meeting on May 19
Citizens Encouraged to Attend
Annapolis, MD — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Fisheries Service will hold a regulatory public meeting on Tuesday, May 19 at 7 p.m. This meeting, held three times a year, will discuss any regulations that the Fisheries Service might propose over the next four months. The public is encouraged to attend and give feedback.
“This is an excellent opportunity for the public to provide their perspective on issues that Fisheries Service is considering addressing by regulatory action in the next few months,” said DNR Fisheries Director Tom O’Connell. “By gaining input from the public at this early stage, the DNR Fisheries Service is better able to identify and consider concerns before proposing a regulation.”
The meeting will be held in the cafeteria of Tawes State Office Building, located at 580 Taylor Ave. Annapolis, MD 21401. A detailed agenda of items to be discussed will be available through the DNR Fisheries Service webpage at www.dnr.maryland.gov/fisheries. To view the public notice, click here.
