Annapolis council to get another earful at hearing on city's budget

Annapolis residents will get another chance to tell the City Council what they think of the city's proposed $38.3 million budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1.

The council decided to continue last week's hearing after residents testified at length about a downtown restaurant's attempt to stay open longer and a zoning change to permit a Safeway grocery store.

The council is scheduled to vote tonight on the zoning change to allow the grocery store to open at Forest Drive and Bywater Road.

Residents of the growing communities off Forest Drive have overwhelmingly supported the store. But a few environmental activists have expressed concern about the traffic impact on the already crowded road.

The proposed operating budget calls for lowering the tax rate by a nickel, from $1.80 per $100 of assessed value to $1.75.
