March 18, 1998|By From staff reports

TOWSON -- A bill that would have required county homeowners with back alleys to put numbers on the rear of their houses failed for want of a fourth vote at Monday night's County Council meeting, though no one voted against it.

Democrats Louis L. DePazzo, of Dundalk, Joseph Bartenfelder, of Fullerton, and council Chairman Stephen G. Sam Moxley, of Catonsville, voted for the measure, intended to help county inspectors, firefighters and police officers locate homes quickly from the rear.

The other four councilmen abstained, and the bill failed for lack of a majority on the seven-member body. In past discussions, several members objected to the bill as an invasion of privacy and an unnecessary expense.

City will share federal grant to clean up industrial sites

Baltimore has been selected as one of 16 sites nationally to receive grants totaling $48 million under a program designed to speed the cleanup of contaminated land formerly used as industrial sites, federal officials said yesterday in Washington.

Vice President Al Gore said that about 20 federal agencies will unite with local governments to reclaim the land under a two-year, $300 million program that started last March.

Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke said Baltimore will spend its $1.5 million grant on a marketing campaign to make the abandoned sites more appealing to businesses considering new locations.
