Twin Ridge cable installation stalls

Mount Airy Mayor Gerald R. Johnson told the Town Council last week that Frederick Cablevision has stopped installing lines in the Twin Ridge development.

Mr. Johnson said the company stopped the work Jan. 22 after receiving complaints that its trucks were muddying newly built streets.

The delay comes just a few months after the Frederick firm won the rights to provide service in the town, which straddles the Carroll-Frederick county line.

Mount Airy was previously served by Prestige Cablevision. Many residents weren't satisfied with the Carroll firm's service.

Mount Airy council to modify tree law

Before approving Carroll's forest conservation ordinance, the Mount Airy Town Council plans to adopt some modifications.

The Town Council has asked its attorney to draft amendments that would:

* Place final approval of forest conservation elements in proposed town developments with Mount Airy officials, instead of the county.

* Require developers who can't replace trees felled on certain tracts and must plant elsewhere to give first priority to the Mount Airy area. Otherwise, Councilman Marcum N. Nance said, a developer building and clearing trees in Mount Airy might plant trees elsewhere in the county.

The county adopted a forest conservation law last year.

Carroll towns agreed to adhere to the county law rather than develop their own.


* Mount Airy: Units from the Mount Airy and Lisbon stations were dispatched to investigate a fire alarm sounding in a building on Runkles Road at 10:49 a.m. Saturday.

Mount Airy firefighters responded to a field fire on East Watersville Road at 6:35 p.m. Friday.

* Winfield: Winfield fire units were sent to fight a brush fire on Hooper Road at 6:53 a.m. Friday.
