Councilman Moxley refuses to alter preservation bill

TOWSON - Baltimore County Councilman Stephen G. Sam Moxley said he will not reconsider his decision to omit three properties from a historic preservation bill.

Members of the county's Landmarks Preservation Commission, appearing at a County Council work session, asked that the sites be added to the final legislation, which would protect them from demolition.

Moxley, a Democrat, defended his decision to exclude the A. D. Anderson House and the Galloway-Dickey House in Catonsville, and Academy Hall in Essex. He said his action was lawful and gave the community notice of the council's intention not to preserve the buildings.
