Meet the Mayor

Share your stories, comments, suggestions, concerns, or just about anything you would like to discuss with Leonardtown’s Mayor, Dan Burris.  

Mayor Burris says that communication is key to keeping Leonardtown an attractive, busy and viable Town and he would like to hear from you on ideas to continue positive growth in a fashion that fits our community’s needs. The best part of living in a small town is the opportunity to work toward enriching each other’s lives and to strengthen the connections of our community.

Schedules can be hectic so Mayor Burris has selected a set time, immediately following the regular Town Council meetings (always the second Monday’s of every month at 4:00 pm) to be available for a half-hour after the meeting.  This is your time to meet the Mayor. 

Keep the lines of communication open, tell your family, friends and business acquaintances to stop in to chat and converse with the Mayor. Get to know the people who serve you and strengthen the trust that you have in their decisions.

Most Leonardtown property owners should receive their annual Leonardtown property tax bill during the week of August 6, 2012.  The bill format has been revised from previous years.  If your property taxes are paid out of your mortgage escrow account, please mail a copy of this bill to them.  If not, please review the payment schedules carefully, as there are different options for making payment(s) for many customers.  There are also discounts available for annual payments made in August and September.

If you do not receive a bill by August 10, 2012, your account information had not been finalized by the State Department of Assessments and Taxation prior to this first processing.  A second processing is expected the week of August 20, 2012.  Feel free to call Rebecca Sothoron, Treasurer at 301-475-9791 if you want to check on the status of your account.
