June 05, 2007|By Josh Mitchell | Josh Mitchell,Sun Reporter

The Baltimore County Council approved last night the hiring of a company to transport Medicaid recipients to doctor's offices and other health facilities.

The contract, approved unanimously, stipulates that the county will pay TransCare Maryland Inc. up to $6.81 million over five years to provide transportation via ambulances and vans to county residents who need such services.

Also last night, the council voted unanimously to designate June 10 as Rachel Carson Day, in honor of the late environmental pioneer and author who studied the impact of pesticides such as DDT.
