DELL ADDRESSES BUILDERS
County Commissioner President Donald I. Dell told a group of business people Thursday he doesn't want to see any new taxes or fees imposed on county residents.
"This board of commissioners is committed to not raising taxes," he told the Carroll County Chapter of the Home Builders Association of Maryland.
The group gathered for its monthly dinner meeting at the Westminster Inn.
Residents are concerned about budget cuts, which have been tough in thecurrent fiscal year and will be even more stringent in the coming year, Dell said.
The commissioners asked county departments to cut 1percent of their budgets in fiscal 1991, which ends June 30, and to cut 2 percent for fiscal 1992, he said.
"I'm very pleased with theway the departments responded to the cuts we had to make," he said. "I think the staff is happy that no layoffs are being considered at this time."
The proposed fiscal 1992 budget is $35,570,915, 29.6 percent less than what originally was requested.
Dell, a Republican who took office in December after his second campaign for the post, said, "I really am enjoying being a county commissioner.
"Thank heaven the three commissioners are getting along well," he said.
Delland his family operate a dairy farm outside Westminster.
He said he realizes impact fees charged to builders to cover the costs of newschools, roads and other facilities and tipping fees charged for dumping in county landfills add to the cost of living.
"They're all taxes.
"I'd really like to really take a good look at all the fees and balance them out. I really have a problem with fees," he said.
This year, the county plans studies on a number of topics, Dell said, including: zoning in South Carroll and Manchester, recycling, tipping fees and adequate public facilities.
Homebuilders, bankers, farmers and other business people will be asked for input for the study on adequate public facilities, Dell said. The commissioners hope to avoid moratoriums by studying the topic now and planning for the future, he said.
