Description

Effective April 12, 1995, the County Council enacted legislation providing for the creation of a Public Arts Trust. The purpose of this program is to incorporate art into public facilities and sponsor privately-funded temporary or permanent displays of art on public property. As written, the County Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) administers the trust in consultation with the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC), Montgomery County Public Schools, Montgomery College, and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. The request for County funds for this project will be determined annually. The guidelines state that the annual request for the next fiscal year will be 0.05 percent of the total approved programmed capital expenditures for the current year Capital Improvements Program of the County Government, Public Schools, Montgomery College, and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Each year, the County Council should consider appropriating this amount but may appropriate any amount.
