The first meeting of a Prince George’s County task force charged with examining whether the county needs an ethics watchdog agency has been canceled because of the snow.

County Executive Rushern Baker’s office said the meeting scheduled for Wednesday morning at Prince George’s Community College in Largo will be rescheduled to a date “in the near future.”

While the snowfall was minimal, it caused many school systems, including Prince George's County, to open two hours late Wednesday morning.

Baker said he wants the Accountability, Compliance and Integrity Advisory Board to make recommendations about whether the county should establish an inspector general's office or similar watchdog agency. He also wants the task force, led by former Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke and retired Prince George's County Circuit Court Judge William Missouri, to review existing county oversight operations.

Wednesday’s meeting also was scheduled for a bad time for Schmoke, whose 78-year-old mother, Irene Bennett Reid, died Tuesday.
