Hogan Administration Releases Excellent Customer Service Report

Governor Larry Hogan announced the release of his administration’s second Customer Service Annual Report earlier this month, which details continued improvements in customer satisfaction, innovation within state agencies, and collaboration with Maryland companies that set the bar for exceptional customer experiences.

Created in 2016, the Governor’s Customer Service Initiative has continually driven improvements in service delivery and citizen experience. All state agencies have improvement plans with performance metrics, training and recognition programs, and proudly display the Governor’s Customer Service Promise, which is the guiding principle that has set the new standard across state government.

"In addition to the hundreds of fees and regulations we have been able to eliminate and reduce over the past four years, improving the service and experience for all those who interact with state government is a critical component of our efforts to reform state government,” said Governor Hogan. “I want to thank our Customer Service Workgroup for their hard work to drive this change, and it has been gratifying to see so many state workers step up with their own ideas on process improvements and innovations to better serve our customers.”

Maryland Board of Public Works Approves Project in Carroll County

On Wednesday, October 3, 2018, the Board of Public Works approved a request by the Maryland Department of the Environment for new grant funding up to $10,012,819 to Carroll County for the Hampstead Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR) Upgrade project.  This project entails the planning, design, and construction of ENR upgrades for the Hampstead WWTP.  This will allow 83% reduction in nitrogen and 90% reduction in phosphorus, thereby reducing nutrients discharged through Deep Run and Piney Run to the Chesapeake Bay.

And on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, the Board of Public Works approved a request to certify matching funds and enter into a grant agreement for a $3,000,000 grant to the Board of Trustees of McDaniel College for the design, construction and equipping of the Gill Physical Education Learning Center.
