La Plata, MD --  The Charles County Commissioners are considering a change to the way school crossing guards are hired. 

Proposed legislation would shift hiring duties away from the Department of Public Safety and leave hiring in the hands of the Charles County Sheriff.

Despite the Sheriff's Office being the hiring authority, the duties of school crossing guards would be limited to assisting with pedestrian and vehicular traffic control directly related to the arrival or dismissal of students of a school.

A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, September 10 at 6:00 p.m. in the County Commissioners Meeting Room of the Charles County Government Building, 200 Baltimore Street in La Plata,

Members of the public who wish to make comments are encouraged to attend. Groups or individuals can make either written or oral comments. Speaker sign-up will begin 30 minutes (1/2 hour) prior to the hearing and will end at the commencement of the hearing.

Each speaker will be allotted three minutes, though they may leave additional written comments.
