Plans To Tap Surplus

In brief

March 22, 1992

County Executive Eileen M. Rehrmann wants to move $682,541 out of Harford's $9.8 million surplus.

The transfer is necessary, she said,because $462,541 that the county was expecting from the state -- reimbursement for granting property tax credits to homeowners -- won't be coming, as a result of the state budget cuts.

The other $220,000 is needed, she said, to cover state cuts in the county's Health Department budget.

The County Council has scheduled a public hearing on the legislation for 7:45 p.m. April 21, in the council chambers, Level A of the County Courthouse, on Main Street in Bel Air.

DEVELOPMENT HALTED

Save for two projects already in the pipeline, the County Council Tuesday night put a halt to development in Edgewood because of the condition of Willoughby Beach Road, the main road that serves the community.

At a community speak-out scheduled by Rehrmann last fall, citizens complained that the winding road had "patches on patches," and that sight distance was a problem.

In adopting an amendment to the master water and sewerage plan, the council agreed to allow two developments to move forward in the next one to five years. Placed in the category of "immediate development" were Otter Creek Landing and Broadneck Landing.
