Mount Airy is 3rd county town with Web page

February 21, 1997

Mount Airy has become Carroll County's third incorporated town to open a home page on the Internet.

The page features a sketch of Twin Arch Bridge by local artist Charles Beck, a welcome from Mayor Gerald R. Johnson and a "still-under-construction" index of local services, ranging from recycling information to area hospitals to retail shopping centers.

Westminster's home page touts the city as the "Summer Home of the Baltimore Ravens." Manchester's features a "Welcome to Manchester" sign at the edge of the town on Route 30. Other Carroll towns are working on home pages.

"We want to give businesses the chance to 'see' the community and then they can come see it if they want to," said Mount Airy Councilman Norman Hammond, who is handling the home page for town government.
