Here are a few tips for viewing the recording.I started the recording a bit too early, so the first few minutes are people just chatting before the meeting starts. You can “skip ahead”, first by moving your cursor onto the screen and then sliding the small dot on the timeline to one of the times, given in minutes and seconds, specified below.

Montgomery County requires that dogs are leashed when off the owner’s property and that owners clean up after their pets. To assist, the PRA maintains six litter bag dispensers in Parkwood: one at the park entrance at Saul and Parkwood, two on the KP Elementary playground (one at each backstop), one near the intersection of Wildwood and Dresden, one at the intersection of Wildwood and Parkwood Drive, and one at the easement entrance on Edgefield Road. If you notice that a dispenser is empty, please send a message noting which dispenser needs to be refilled to firstname.lastname@example.org.
