Commissioners begin review of code of laws

November 21, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The Carroll commissioners have begun their review of three chapters of the county Code of Public Local Laws, charging a 10-member committee to make recommendations on revisions to personnel policies, ethics and open meetings ordinances.

"We ask you to review each chapter to make sure it has what we need today," Commissioner Donald I. Dell told the committee Monday. "Feel free to dig in and see what is good or bad."

Commissioner Julia Walsh Gouge told the committee, which has until July to complete its work, to call on the board with questions.

"If there are issues you feel are important, bring them back to the commissioners," she said.

Carole Hammen, the county's personnel director, will serve as committee coordinator. Members include James I. Melhorn, president of Episcopal Ministries to the Aging; Lori A. Blake and Jan Stambaugh, both employed in human resources at area businesses; the Rev. James Talley, Suzanne Primoff and John S. Harner, members of the county Ethics Commission; Republican Del. Joseph M. Getty, a two-term member of the county legislative delegation; Paula A. Langmead, superintendent of Springfield Hospital Center; and Judy Smith, a Union Bridge business owner.
