County Council postpones decision on water, sewer plan until Aug. 16

August 04, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Exhausted by lengthy debate during its Monday night hearing, the Anne Arundel County Council voted to postpone voting on a plan that would direct changes to the county's water and sewer system during the next two decades.

The highly technical plan could have major implications on where houses, shopping malls and businesses are built between now and 2020.

Most council members initially said they were opposed to the administration's plan, but heavy lobbying by County Executive Janet S. Owens has won the measure some support.

Council members rescheduled a hearing and possible vote on the plan for Aug. 16.
