Acting county attorney named to post permanently

The Carroll County commissioners announced last week that acting County Attorney George A. Lahey has been named to the job permanently.

Mr. Lahey, 63, has been with the county attorney's office since 1989. He will earn $60,000 a year, a raise of about $7,000.

In March, he was named to head the office temporarily after County Attorney Charles W. Thompson Jr. resigned to become Montgomery County attorney.

The commissioners have expressed interest in making the 14-employee office private and are reviewing a study conducted for them by the Institute for Government Service at the University of Maryland, Commissioner W. Benjamin Brown said.

He would not say what the study recommended but promised to release the document by the end of the month.

Public hearing tomorrow on zoning amendments

The county commissioners will hold a public hearing at 9 a.m. tomorrow in Room 7, Carroll County Office Building, 225 N. Center St., Westminster, to hear public comments on proposed amendments to Carroll County Zoning Ordinance No. 1-E.

The proposed ordinance would amend zoning regulations governing communications towers that support radio, cellular telephone and television transmission antennas, microwave relay towers, monopoles and similar structures for the transmission, reception or the reception and retransmissioned of electronic signals.

The amendments would require all communications tower complexes, as defined in the ordinance, to be constructed in industrial zones as a conditional use and to specify the setback and fall-radius requirements for utility equipment and towers.
