Cabin John Middle School is one of four schools in Montgomery County that will receive money for renovations from Maryland’s alcohol tax, according to a report in the Baltimore Sun. The other schools to be renovated are Cannon Road Elementary School, Farmland Elementary School and Garrett Park Elementary School.
On Wednesday, Oct. 5, the State Board of Public Works doled out funds from the tax, which went into effect on July 1 and is expected to raise $85 million in the first year. A little more than half of that will go to school projects. In subsequent years, all revenue will go to Maryland’s general fund.
In addition to Montgomery, schools in Prince George’s, Howard, Anne Arundel and Baltimore Counties, as well as Baltimore City, were earmarked to receive funds.
