The Annapolis City Council will hold a public hearing tonight on a bill that would double the number of children that day-care providers may supervise.
The city now permits licensed day-care providers tolook after four children. The new law, proposed by Mayor Alfred A. Hopkins, would increase the number to eight.
Hopkins proposed changing the law to match the limit set by Anne Arundel County, said City Administrator Michael Mallinoff.
The proposal, he said, also would help parents make the most of limited day-care facilities in the city.
The council also will hold a public hearing on a request by Hudson Development Associates to annex 14.6 acres of county land on Riding Ridge Road.
The developer wants to build single-family homes on the property.
The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, City Hall, Duke of Gloucester Street.
