State delays plans for probation office

January 08, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The state Board of Public Works decided yesterday to delay action on a proposal to spend $1.5 million to prepare renovation plans for Baltimore's main probation office.

Neighbors of the office at 2100 Guilford Ave. have asked the state to find a new site for the facility. They say that probation clients cause trouble for their neighborhood.

More than a dozen residents attended the board's meeting in Annapolis. Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley wrote a letter to the three-member board, which includes Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., requesting a 60-day stay. The request was granted.
