The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners is proud to present its 2016 Progress Report on local government initiatives and accomplishments from the board’s four-year term covering 2014 to 2018.

The Progress Report provides an overview of county government operations in a variety of areas including county finances, economic development, transportation, education and public safety.
