The city of Frederick is seeking $11.8 million in funding for local projects in the next state budget, city officials said while meeting with state delegates and senators on Monday. The 2024 General Assembly session is scheduled to begin Jan. 10. Gov. Wes Moore must introduce his proposed budget for fiscal year 2025 to the General Assembly by Jan. 17. Aside from continued investment in the U.S. 15 widening project — which remains a top priority for city and county officials and the state delegation for Frederick County — the city’s largest request is $7 million for new amenities at Westside Regional Park.
