Crofton Civic Association to present awards, discuss developments tonight

The Crofton Civic Association, holding its first meeting tonight since passing the fiscal year 1994 budget, is scheduled to discuss several developments and give two awards.

Officer David Muhl will receive a citation for trying to talk a man out of committing suicide Dec. 9 in front of the Crofton Post Office. He was unsuccessful, however.

The man shot himself in the head in front of police and onlookers about 10 p.m.

Town Manager Jordan Harding said Delores Rottman, who works in the county office of community service, also will be given an award for her work with the community on behalf of county government.

Also on the agenda is a discussion on dropping the insurance policy that covers employees of the special tax district.

Mr. Harding said the board has authorized Ed Dosek, the president, to drop the Local Government Insurance Trust and seek a commercial carrier because of the trust's inability to provide excess coverage for employees in the amount of $1 million.

Other agenda items include the Willows of Crofton, a 70-home development off Route 450 that consists of $250,000 single-family homes. The developer, Chateau Builders, is almost ready to start construction, Mr. Harding said.

Police Chief Deborah Bogush also is scheduled to present board members and the public with updated crime statistics for the community.

The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Crofton Town Hall.

Rockville man struck, killed by passing car

A 28-year-old Rockville man was struck by a car and killed in Crofton late Friday night as he stood by his car exchanging information with another driver.

Gregg I. Getz of the 13000 block of Drake Drive had been involved in a minor accident on Route 424 near Farrell Street about 11:20 p.m. He had gotten out of his car and was exchanging information with the driver of the other car when he and two others were struck by a third car heading west on the road.

Mr. Getz was pronounced dead at North Arundel Hospital at 1:21 a.m. Saturday. Two other people injured, Paul F. Glenn, 22, of Crofton and Ann S. Glenn, 58, of Crofton, were treated at the hospital for minor injuries and released.

According to a police report, the driver, Michael T. Bardowski, 40, of Crofton, "failed to see the subjects standing in the roadway."

Late yesterday afternoon, county police said no charges had been brought against Mr. Bardowski.
