The Baltimore County Council passed two ordinances last night aimed at helping neighbors of Towson State University deal with unruly student behavior and parking problems around the school.
One law makes it illegal for anyone to urinate or defecate on public property. It specifies fines up to $100 and 30 days in jail for any violations. The other authorizes the county traffic engineer to limit the number of residential parking permits allowed in communities near the university.
Council Chairman Douglas B. Riley, R-4th, who represents the Towson area, said the measures were recommended by a committee set up to respond to complaints about student-related noise and parking problems.
