Civic Group Elects Board

January 10, 1991|By Staff report

Members of the Glen Burnie Improvement Association braved slick, icystreets to elect a new board of directors Tuesday night.

Althoughassociation President Muriel Carter considered canceling the meeting, nearly 40 members showed up despite the bad weather, she said.

The association elected its new board of directors for 1991. Three current members -- Harold Bryant; Lewin Maddox, head of the airportcommittee; and Barbara Moeller, who chaired last year's carnival committee -- were re-elected. Joseph Corcoran, Charles Cusick and Kathy DeGrange also were elected.

In other business, GBIA members voted to give the Glen Burnie Volunteer Fire Department a $5,000 grant for operating expenses in the upcoming year. The civic association has traditionally granted money to aid the volunteer fire company.

The civic association also supported a group of neighbors who plan to protest a requested zoning variance to build a garage at 207 Oak Lane. The property owner's petition for a variance was denied last summer, but he plans to appeal, Carter said.

A hearing is scheduled for Jan.31 in County Council chambers in Annapolis. Neighbors plan to petition the county's zoning administrator to deny the variance because they claim the owner wants to use the garage for commercial storage.
