Does anyone have information about security camera placement and what model numbers and manufacturer's DGS, DPR and PSD uses for parks and recreation centers?
I am a contractor and a Senior Project Manager working to design and build and ultimately, maintain parks and recreation centers for the Department of Parks and Recreation. I have been quietly pleased with everyone's professionalism, dedication and passion. That includes full-time DC employees and their contractor colleagues.
I'm not sure who to thank, but I just got the newsletter from the DC Office of Tax and Revenue and was pleased to see one of the changes to taxes are, "Feminine hygiene products: The sale of feminine hygiene products is exempt from sales and use taxes." Well done DC!! Thanks Muriel Bowser! Way to remove the "pink tax."
