Mount Airy climate pledge dies

August 07, 2007|By Laura McCandlish

A resolution proposed by Mount Airy Mayor Frank Johnson to endorse a national climate-protection pledge died at a Town Council meeting last night.

Council member John Woodhull made a motion to support Johnson's resolution, but it was not seconded by any of the three other council members present.

As mayor, Johnson can introduce legislation and resolutions but does not vote.

Sykesville is the only one of Carroll County's eight municipalities to endorse the U.S. Mayor's Climate Protection Agreement, which promotes energy conservation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
