Holland loses fight to prevent shift of the leftover $330,000

February 24, 1994

The County Council has approved a bill to transfer $330,000 left over from construction of the Lake Shore Athletic Complex to pay for asbestos removal and demolition of abandoned warehouses on county-owned property on Ordnance Road in Glen Burnie.

The bill was vigorously opposed Tuesday night by Councilman Carl G. "Dutch" Holland, a Pasadena Republican, as well as several residents, who voiced their displeasure at the proposed fund transfer.

Nine dilapidated warehouses must be taken off the property in Glen Burnie so that federal officials can remove soil contaminated with radioactive thorium nitrate. County officials said that money to complete the sports complex in Pasadena has been committed, and it will be finished in May.

Four council members voted in favor of the bill: David G. Boschert, D-Crownsville; Maureen Lamb, D-Annapolis; Virginia P. Clagett, D-West River; and Diane R. Evans, R- Arnold. Council members C. Edward Middlebrooks, D-Severn, and George F. Bachman, D-Linthicum, joined Mr. Holland in voting against the bill.
