Estonia officials to visit County EMS/Fire/Rescue

The County EMS/Fire/Rescue department will welcome a delegation of officials of the government of Estonia tomorrow at 2: 30 p.m. at the County Emergency Operations Center.

The 10 visitors, the equivalent of county executives and National Guard commanders, are in Maryland as guests of the Maryland National Guard and will go to Anne Arundel County to learn more about local government preparedness planning.

The National Guard's State Partnership Program links U.S. states and emerging democracies of central and eastern Europe and Eurasia. A focus of the program is to convey the idea that in a democratic society the military is subordinated to civilian authority.

Citizen planning groups schedule meetings in April

Citizen planners from Crofton, Edgewater/Mayo, Severna Park, Broadneck, Crownsville and Annapolis Neck have released their meeting schedule for April. The committees are working with the Department of Planning and Code Enforcement to develop detailed land-use plans and recommendations to guide the use of private property and public spending over the next 25 years. They are expected to complete their work this year, leading to comprehensive rezoning in their communities in early 1999. Over the next three years, Anne Arundel County will complete 16 small-area plans.

State grant-funded schools to register pre-K students

The 18 Anne Arundel County public elementary schools that offer state grant-funded pre-kindergarten will begin registering students April 27. The program selects 4-year-olds based on need, not on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents will be notified by July 15 whether their children have been accepted. The Annapolis area schools with pre-kindergartens are Georgetown East, Germantown, Hillsmere, Mills-Parole, Rolling Knolls and Tyler Heights. In the west county area, they are Harman, Jessup, Maryland City and Van Bokkelen. The Glen Burnie-area schools are Freetown, Glendale, Hilltop, Marley, North Glen, Park, Solley and Woodside.
