ignated scenic or wild nver within its jurisdiction.
For those rivers that flow through one county on-
ly, the Board consists of two county residents who

contiguous to that portion of the river between
Millers Run and the southern corporate limits of

representative of the local governing body, and
two members of the soil conservation district. For
those local Boards in which the river flows

sists of no more than two residents of each county
through which the scenic or wild river flows who
own land contiguous to the river, two who do not
own such land, two representatives of the local
governing body of the county through which the
river flows, and one representative of each soil
conservation district. Members select their own
chairperson (Code Natural Resources Article, sec.

Board consists of five members appointed by the
Commissioners for five-year staggered terms, with

gomery and Wicomico counties, Departments of
Public Works have charge of roads and are re-
sponsible to the County Council. In Baltimore
County the line of authority runs to the county
Administrative Officer, and thence to the County
Executive. In Calvert, Cecil, Charles, Kent, St.
Mary's and Talbot counties, the State Roads
