Charities Receive Money

November 14, 1990

WESTMINSTER - Members of the city's FallFest Committee presented checks to each of the benefiting charities from this year's event at Monday night's City Council meeting.

Representatives from the Boy Scouts, Junction and Family and Children's Services were all present to receive their $3,500 checks.

Carol Donovan, head of the city's recreation department, said the festival raised $14,900 this year. Of the remaining money, $400 was donated to Carroll County Food Sunday, $2,000 will be used to upgrade electricity and $2,000 was kept to begin planning for next year.

In other council news:

* Council members approved a request from the Historical Society to use the armory for a dance, provided that alcohol was not served.

City attorney John B. Walsh Jr. advised that while the city's lease with the state for the armory would allow alcohol, ordinance 12-21.2 prohibits it.

Council members would have to revoke the ordinance to allow alcohol for a social function, Walsh said.

* Councilman Mark S. Snyder suggested the council consider making residential parking a service the city provides free of charge, noting the continuing parking complaints from Willis Street residents.

* Members approved donating $1,562 to the Westminster Municipal Band to cover the cost of new uniforms.

* Council members are developing an ordinance dealing with peddlers in the city. It will be discussed at the Nov. 26 meeting.
