Evans quits jail site panel

October 15, 1992

Anne Arundel County Councilwoman Diane R. Evans resigned yesterday from the citizen task force that will select a site for a new county detention center, calling the group's decision-making process "flawed."

At the same time, County Executive Robert R. Neall accused the task force of "playing games" after it eliminated a site near Glen Burnie that he favored and added other sites for consideration that he said clearly do not meet the county's criteria.

Ms. Evans, a Republican from Arnold, said she was resigning because she feels the Detention Center Siting and Alternative Sentences Task Force has strayed from its original mission, which was to find a location for the new jail.

Mr. Neall expressed his irritation yesterday morning as he spoke to the Republican Women of Anne Arundel County about some of the task force's recent decisions.
