Ready Report: Local News Update

I hope you and your family are doing well as we start getting into summertime. Below I have included some information on upcoming events, free lunches for children in need in Carroll County, funding approval for critical infrastructure in one of our towns and more.

Ready Business Breakfast Fundraiser – THIS Tuesday:

This Tuesday is our Annual Breakfast fundraiser (June 13th). We’ll be at Greenmount Station in Hampstead and I look forward to the networking, connection and opportunity to update attendees on the outcome of the legislative session and our next steps forward in the fight to turn Maryland back from extreme, liberal policies.

It’s not too late to attend, tickets are $75 per person and there are also sponsorships available for the event. You can click here to get more information and secure your spot.

I really hope you can make it in person but if you are not able to and still want to help – your contribution here of $75, $150 or even $25 or $50 would be a huge help to our efforts fighting back for our values in Annapolis.

(As always, if you’d prefer to mail a check, you can do so to “Friends of Justin Ready”, P.O. Box 402, Westminster, MD 21158.) I really appreciate your support – thank you!

Manchester Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrades

A request from the Maryland Department of the Environment for new grant funding up to $1,151,492 from the Bay Restoration Fund to the Town of Manchester for the Town’s Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR) Upgrade project. This project entails the planning, design, and construction of an ENR upgrade for Manchester’s WWTP. This project will ensure a reduction of 83% in nitrogen and 90% in phosphorus, thereby reducing nutrients discharged to Georges Run, and ultimately to the Chesapeake Bay.
