Carbo named county hearing examiner

New position created to speed zoning cases

April 14, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Howard County's first Board of Appeals hearing examiner is Thomas P. Carbo, an assistant county solicitor who plans to resign next month to begin a private practice in Carroll County.

Carbo, 43, a county lawyer since 1989, was chosen from among 21 applicants, according to Howard County Council secretary Sheila Tolliver. Carbo's first case as hearing examiner is scheduled for May 20.

Howard County created a hearing examiner position to more quickly address conditional use, zoning variances and administrative appeals cases and to reduce the backlog awaiting board action. The examiner will hear all new cases. Only those appealed will be heard by the full Board of Appeals.

Carbo graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and received his law degree from the University of Maryland School of Law. He has been a member of the Maryland Bar since 1985.
