The Bel Air Town-Go-Round bus is now making one stop on Shamrock Road instead of three during its 50-minute loops around Bel Air.
The Harford County Transportation Service has made two stop changes to make its bus service more convenient. Also, a stop at the English Country Manor development off Gateway Drive has been added.
The bus, which operates 9 a.m. to 3:42 p.m. Monday through Friday, makes 16 stops, but passengers are allowed to flag the bus down at undesignated locations if it is safe for the bus to stop.
The bus carries about 100 passengers daily, most of them senior citizens, said James Macgill, spokesman for the transportation service.
DAY-CARE CENTERS ZONED
The Havre de Grace Council has approved a plan to allow citizens to operate day-care centers in all of the city's four residential districts without special zoning clearances.
The plan was approved by a 4-2 vote, with Councilman Joseph W. Kochenderfer and Rene A. Lambert voting against the proposal.They said the change would weaken city zoning codes.
In the past,day-care centers had to receive a conditional-use permit from the city Board of Appeals before opening. Centers could open in the residential-business district without zoning clearances under the previous zoning laws.
The council's vote permits eight day-care centers thatdid not meet the city's previous zoning requirements to stay in business.
