Commission adds 2nd hearing on OTB

April 21, 1993|By Ross Peddicord

The Maryland Racing Commission is holding not one, but two public hearings in Frederick County today to listen to public comment concerning the proposed opening of the state's first off-track betting outlet at the Cracked Claw restaurant in Urbana.

The first hearing is at the restaurant at 10 a.m. "But a number of people wrote or called their county delegate [Tom Hattery-D, Frederick] and said they couldn't make it at that time," said commission chairman John H. "Jack" Mosner Jr. "So, in order to accommodate everyone and to make sure that all their feelings and concerns are heard, we will hold another meeting later in the day which will be chaired by [commission member] Allan Levey."

The second meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Frederick County Commissioners' meeting room in Winchester Hall in Frederick.

Levey said yesterday that it should take one to three days for the commission to study the testimony and then decide whether the Cracked Claw will be given an OTB license.
